Chicago is famous for its iconic architecture, but it's quickly gaining a worldwide reputation for its iconic public art as well. The work of famous artists including Pablo Picasso, Jean Miro, and Marc Chagall is showcased along Chicago's streets, inside building lobbies and atop Chicago buildings. In all, there are more than 700 sculptures, mosaics and paintings, most created and installed since 1967, the year when the first sculpture-an unnamed gigantic creation by Picasso-was installed in Daley Plaza. The latest entries into Chicago's artistic lexicon are the works that grace Millennium Park, the city's new front yard. Chicago's commitment to public art is funded through an innovative Percent for Arts program that allocates 1.33 percent of the construction budget for new public buildings to commission and acquire artwork.

The map is very user unfriendly. If your phones screen shuts off due to inactivity, you have to start the app up all over again. Each time which is annoying, especially when you're trying to get directions. There is much more art in this city that hasn't been tapped yet. The descriptions of the artwork isn't very descriptive and some don't even have the artists name.
