It is nice to be able to walk around a city and stumble upon artwork, let alone a piece by a master like Picasso. No one was there when we were there so we were able to enjoy.

It was a lovely surprise to find at Chicago city center a Picasso's Sculpture. And at the same square it was happening a Christmas market. So special!

Here is one of the most moving art pieces in Chicago that I think often gets over-looked. Picasso gifted this sculpture to Chicago and was placed in the Ricard Daley Plaza. Many ask 'what is it?' Isn't that what art is suppose to be?

We attended the Christkindle Market in Daly Plaza where the Picasso statue is located. It is very impressive looming over the market like a protector.
