I love Chicago. On top of the fresh spring flowers that the city plants everywhere every spring (I think they’ll be here soon), it’s also one of the only cities in the US that still seems to be funding art installations. There’s something magical about a city that beautifies for no good reason.
ActiveCampaign lives and builds great web software in a building right in downtown Chicago, right across the street from the city’s famous Millenium Park. A few of the surrounding buildings have had giant sculptures for some time now, while we suffered–despite our building‘s status as essentially a statue itself–a bare sidewalk.
No more! Now we have a great big colorful piece of something out front facing Michigan Avenue. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but I think I kind of like it.
