Crown Fountain at Millennium Park

Crown Fountain at Millennium Park

Part video installation, part play area, Jaume Plensa’s black granite reflecting pool banked between two 50-foot towers is true interactive art. As visitors splash about, images of people-actually, Chicagoans shot by students from the School of the Art Institute, flash on the screens and appear to playfully spit water into the wading pool beneath.
