I walked past the Flamingo Statue on my way to Mllenium Park, it is as in pictures and is an impressive structure. This not a must visit however unless you are into sculpture or art or it’s on your way to somewhere.
One thing I admire about the city of Chicago is they understand the value of great art. This courtyard could be filled with real estate but instead it is dedicated to surrounding people with great art. You won’t miss this red sculpture. Always makes me...More
We came across this as we were running to get out of the rain it has an amazing look as the rain falls around it I’m sure much different then on a bright sunny day.

American artist Calder created this stationary abstract steel sculpture, Flamingo. The vermillion color, since dubbed "Calder red", is striking against the surrounding black and steel office buildings. This was the first piece commissioned under the federal Percent for Art program.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
