Crown Fountain
Designed by Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa, the Crown Fountain features two 50-foot high glass block towers at each end of a shallow reflecting pool. The towers are activated with changing video images and lights, and water cascades from the top of each. Anchoring the southwest corner of Millennium Park at Michigan Avenue and Monroe Streets, the Crown Fountain is a major addition to the city’s world-renowned public art collection. Inspired by the people of Chicago whose faces appear on the glass towers’ changing video images, this site-specific work creates both a unique meeting point and a dynamic space for silent reflection. Utilizing water, light, and glass, Plensa has created a bold statement that is sure to stimulate passers-by and invite them to enter and experience Millennium Park.

A child of the 50’s, a survivor of the 60’s, my main artistic outlets are stained glass and photography. I have operated my glass studio since 1976 and have works all over the U.S. I originally entered university to study photographic journalism, but as John Lennon wrote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I do not use PS or other manipulations in my photographs, just adjusted settings on the camera.

    How cool. I really want to go and visit Chicago again. The last time I went was too short of a time, but fun all all the same.

  • I think that can be arranged a bit easier than a visit to Scotland, Alex. That will need to wait a bit :-{

    FANTASTIC image Doug! Never been to Chicago … your images almost make me want to brave city mayhem again … Awesome!!!

  • Thank you, Em. Chicago is one of our favourite cities and with the public transportation and taxis a relatively easy city to navigate in-it wasn’t even too difficult by auto if the sun wasn’t in your eyes to make you miss the street signs, but that is another story… at least there were no casualties… peace
