In Millenium park there are several pieces. There is an amphitheater and bridge that were designed my Geary. My friend Geoff got to be part of the local architecture team that worked on them in Chicago. They are pretty awesome looking, the metal that looks like it's curling back from the amphitheatre and the overlapping metal shingles on the bridge. I took a lot of photos of the bridge, I will only post one here. It was pretty awesome looking. At the amphitheatre there was a free preformance of the music from the Pirates of Penzance. That was pretty cool too!
Also in Millenium Park is what Geoff called the Bean. It has some other name but I don't know what it is. It was pretty cool. As you can see, it's highly reflective and interactive. People can walk under it. There is another piece nearby, with a face on it in LED lights. There is water that runs over the top of it. The face changes and after awhile it purses it's lips and looks like it's spitting water. I didn't get a good photo of it. You can just barely see the top of the face over the trees in this photo. They are also putting what they call pavillions in Millenium Park. They just finished the first one. I don't much get this one, but it is something you can walk around under. It had rained and it was wet. There were kids in swimsuits slipping and sliding all over it.
I have not felt as engaged with the public art here in Phoenix, but it does make me what to go and take some photos and see what I think after looking at it again. I really like Chicago and what they have invested in themselves over time.
