Colorful Chicago

Red rug in front of the Peacock Door, Palmer House Hilton Hotel where we stayed in Chicago last weekend.
Crown Fountain, Millenium Park, bathed with color at night...
By day: boy in red playing in the water at the Crown Fountain.
"Flamingo" by Alexander Calder, Federal Plaza.
"Flamingo" viewed from 103 stories high on the SkyDeck at the Willis Tower.
Red curtain, Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park. 
At the Art Institute, several paintings and Chagall's famous stained-glass windows impressed me with their use of vivid primary colors.

One of the Chagall windows.

Gino Severini, "Still Life (Centrifugal Expansion of Colors)."
Alexis Jawlensky, "Girl with the Green Face."

Otto Dix, "Pregnant Woman."
Max Pechstein, "The Red House." 
Lyonel Feininger, "Carnival in Arcueil."

I used to visit Chicago at least twice a year for business -- loved it. Haven't been back in ages -- really need to again. So much to do and see! Not to mention eat. :-) Fun pictures -- thanks.

LOVE all the red. The Chagall windows in the art institute are one of my favorites. That hotel looked amazing!
