We walked to the Bean first so Danny and Joseph could see it (they hadn't been downtown in ages). There are only so many images you can take of the Bean; here is the single one I took as a reflection.
At the urging of my friend Pamela, we revisited the Chicago Cultural Center. The last time, Fernando and I made a quick run-through of the two galleries of Vivian Maier's street photography work, and then we left. This time, we actually explored. How could we have missed this??
Preston Bradley Hall, Chicago Cultural Center
This building used to be the Chicago Public Library. I don't know how anyone could get any studying or book-finding done; I found myself walking with my face turned up toward the walls and ceilings. My pictures in no way do any kind of justice to the grandeur of the tile work and domes in this building. It was breathtaking.

Danny wanted to see the Vivian Maier exhibit, so we made a quick visit to her gallery.

That was it; just a quick trip in. We'll have to do it a time or two more, since Jacob needs to cover another court case or two. At least I'm comfortable now driving in and getting around!
You can see all the images I captured of the Chicago Cultural Center here on my photography blog.
