Jaume Plensa: 1004 Portraits

Posted on September 2, 2014 by segwayXchicago

According to our partners at Choose Chicago – “Millennium Park is a work of art in itself: beautiful lawns, graceful paths, and stunning architectural elements at every turn. And in celebration of its 10th anniversary, its outdoor plazas will come alive as FREE, alfresco art galleries which will display works in two special temporary exhibitions.”

A monumental installation by Jaume Plensa — the renowned sculptor and creator of one of the Park’s most prominent attractions, the Crown Fountain — will take over the South Boeing Gallery until December 2015.

Featuring four striking, large-scale portraits of young girls, Jaume Plensa: 1004 Portraits expands upon the story of the 1000 LED portraits of Chicago residents that illuminate the Crown Fountain.”

You’ll glide by part of this installation and see many more intriguing Chicago destinations on your Segway Tour with Segway Experience of Chicago!

Believe it or not, the below photo is representative of the sculpture’s actual proportions.  The photo is not mistakenly elongated due to an upload error – the artists’ true intentions are best observed in real life – so make a trip to downtown Chicago and visit us at Segway Experience of Chicago – we’re right next door to this amazing addition to both the city of Chicago and Millennium Park.

  • I am a born and raised Chicagoan and never knew how much fun I was missing. I have never been on anything like the Segway's before so I was nervous but within seconds our tour guides Casey and Andrew had us feeling like pros. They gave us a very informative evening along with fun and laughter. I would do it again and again. read more unedited reviews here...  zerve reviews

  • By some stroke of luck my friend and I were the only two people on the Tour. Our guide, Johnathon, was absolutely fantastic. He gave us the full tour even though there were only two of us. I am a lifelong Chicago resident and yet I still learned things and saw things I didn't know. Best seventy bucks I have spent in years!Perry Buckley zerve reviews
