The Picasso statue has been drawing stares and comments for over 50 years. If you have an opportunity to see it up close, see what you think it is.

This is an iconic piece of art you should experience while in Chicago. Just a short walk from Millennium Park and if the weather is rough, you can take the underground PedWay from Millennium Station. The ChristKindle Market is in this plaza in November and...More
