Discover more about this tour

What do the artists Picasso, Chagall, Miro, and Kapoor all have in common? Incredible public art hiding in plain sight amidst world famous architecture. Tour Chicago in a small group perfect for busy sidewalks and get up close to monumental art! Join one of our expert guides on this unique and exclusive 2.5 hour guided walking tour of Downtown Chicago.

What do the artists Picasso, Chagall, Miro, and Kapoor all have in common? Incredible public art within a few blocks of each other. After the Chicago fire created a clean slate to design a new downtown during the height of the gilded age, much attention has focused on the internationally renowned architecture that populates Chicago’s downtown. However, hiding in plain sight is spectacular public art that adds depth and character to the “City of Big Shoulders”.  From metal behemoths, to massive mosaics, and murals that could be seen for miles (if the skyscrapers didn’t get in the way) some of the most famous artists from the twentieth century to today have left their blood, sweat, and tears scattered in the heart of Chicago to inspire the future and remember the past.

Highlights Include:

Edward Kemeys’s “Lions”
Juame Plensa’s “Crown Fountain”
