Chicago's public art Rocks.
Chicago's O'hare airport shows off an impressive replica of a gentle giant Brachiaosaurus which roamed the mid west millions of years ago. It adds a great educational /entertaining element to the airport setting (which are now, unfortunately, indistinguishable from Malls). A shark & sting ray filled giant aquarium would be fantastic.
Artist Anish Kapoor's irresistible, mesmerizing, 23 million dollar seamless polished steel CLOUD GATE sculpture is the star attraction in Chicago's gorgeous Millennium Park.
There should be a similar, other worldly sculpture in All cities.
Frank Gehry's outdoor theater design's futuristic appeal is another brilliant addition to Millennium Park.
