There's much more to Chicago than just its namesake pizza: "that toddling town" is also very much alive with art. The visionary spirit that gave birth to the Chicago school of architecture is still evident today in buildings such as the Jay Pritzker Music Pavilion or the Gary Comer Youth Center. The city's unique architectural landscape is dotted with public art from the classic Picasso sculpture at the Loop to the contemporary Cloud Gate at Millennium Park. And with such venues as the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Windy City is guaranteed to satisfy the appetite of every art lover.
