This unusual sculpture in Chicago is not to be missed.

Crown Fountain

The fountain with a thousand faces.

While walking around Millennium Park you will come across a 15-metre high, glass brick tower. You will be surprised to learn that this fountain was designed by the Catalan artist Jaume Plensa. The faces of 1,000 residents of Chicago appear on its LED screens with their mouths opening in time with the spouts of water. They look like old-fashioned gargoyles with water squirting from their mouths. Beside this video sculpture, which was inaugurated in 2004 at a cost of 17 million dollars, you will find a shallow, black granite swimming pool where children and adults can cool off. Although you can see the images all year round, the fountain only works from May to October avoiding the colder months.
