Location and Directions
Millennium Park, managed
and programmed by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, is an award-winning
center for art, music, architecture and landscape design. The result of a unique
partnership between the City of Chicago and the philanthropic community, the 24.5-acre
park features the work of world-renowned architects, planners, artists and designers.
Among Millennium Park’s prominent features are the Frank Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker
Pavilion, the most sophisticated outdoor concert venue of its kind in the United
States; the interactive Crown Fountain by Jaume Plensa; the contemporary Lurie Garden
designed by the team of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, Piet Oudolf and Robert Israel;
and Anish Kapoor’s hugely popular Cloud Gate sculpture. Since its opening in July
2004, Millennium Park has welcomed more than 20 million people, making it one of
the most popular destinations in Chicago.
