Chicago || At the end of the day [one]

After a full day of intense lobbying – in the most literal sense of the word, it was time to sit back and (re)collect all the stunning places, experiences and photos we took: the tour at the Rookery, the marvelous art deco details of the Board of Trade and the Field Building, the gorgeous Tiffany mosaics at the Marquette, the very atmospheric Monadnock.

And to top it all off, some serious public art adorning the streets of Chicago.

Flamingo – by Alexander Calder in the Federal Plaza


Chagall’s Four Seasons mosaic in the Exelon Plaza


The Winged Victory of Samothrace, cast from a mold from the original sculpture in the Louvre Museum, Paris – (but why make it gold at all…? marble would have been equally stunning)


We Will, a welded stainless steel sculpture by Richard Hunt

One thought on “Chicago || At the end of the day [one]

  1. Love these photos. Conjures up thoughts of taking a vacation to the windy city. I am curious about the image of the photographic slides? Reminds me of the old days and my 12,000 slides neatly tucked away in environmental boxes, which, since I scanned them years ago, I likely will never open. M 🙂
