Finding Art in Chicago

"This world is but a canvas to our imagination." - Henry David Thoreau
Chicago has a known reputation as a street-photography city. Even more, when you come out of the streets and wander deep within the various parks scattered around the city, you'll notice the most random art waiting to be discovered. From the famous "Bean" to the Buckingham fountain, you can also wander deeper into the art world in the museums -- my personal favorite being the Museum of Contemporary Art.

the famous 'Bean'
Don't forget about him, as it's being overshadowed by the Bean.
