Just across the street from the Daley Center, nestled in a small plaza that seems made just to shelter it (though it wasn’t), sits Chicago, an abstract figure by Spanish artist Joan Miró. The steel, bronze, concrete, and tile sculpture stands 39 feet tall. It was funded in part by the City of Chicago under then-Mayor Jane Byrne and unveiled in 1981.
