When Millennium Park opened on July 16, 2004, it had transformed what was an industrial wasteland (railways and parking lots covered this stretch of South Michigan Avenue) into a showplace for cutting-edge art, architecture, landscape design, music and more. Today, the 24.5-acre park is Chicago's second-largest tourist attraction — and the city will mark its 10th anniversary throughout the summer of 2014.
One of two special exhibitions that celebrate this momentous occasion, Millennium Park: An Anatomy in Photographs, will be on display in the park's North Boeing Gallery from June 18, 2014 through October 2015.
This FREE, outdoor exhibit will feature over 50 images of Millennium Park — including historical photographs; images before, during and after construction; and the work of numerous photographers who used the park as their subject.
PLAN YOUR VISIT
Visit the North Boeing Gallery, a mid-level terrace located on the park's northwest corner, to view the exhibit. And look for Jaume Plensa: 1004 Portraits, the special anniversary exhibit located in the South Boeing Gallery.
Admission to both outdoor gallery spaces is free and open to the public during park hours (6am-11pm).
