1004 Portraits


Earlier this month I posted a photo of the Crown Fountain in Chicago's Millennium Park.  That fountain with it's 1000 faces of Chicago citizens projected on glass bricks is by artist Jaume Plensa.  On my trip to Chicago in late September, I found another sculpture by the same artist.  I found out later that there were actually 4 sculptures scattered throughout the park which is why Plensa named the installation "1004 Portraits".  He added four more faces to the 1000 he features at Crown Fountain every day.

The installation celebrates the 10th anniversary of Plensa's  Crown Fountain.  The sculptures are portraits of young girls created in cast iron and resin.
