Chicago's Crown Fountain

Detroit to Chicago Sign
Goodbye orange barrels!
Well, well, well. It appears that Detroit Video Daily isn't posting videos daily. For that matter, it now appears that DVD isn't even posting videos about Detroit. So what's the story you ask? DVD recently packed up the buggy and ventured west to visit Chicago. A visit to the windy city that had one thinking of all sorts of Detroit vs. Chicago posts. But really does Chicago compare to Detroit? Hmmm. Don't answer that.

One thing Chicago has that Detroit doesn't is a wonderful public art exhibit in its downtown Millennium Park that involves towers, people and water. Designed by artist Juame Plensa the fountain is actually two 50 foot towers that have faces of numerous Chicago residents on their sides. The faces of course have to do something, and that's where the fountain part comes in to play. You can read much more about the art here on this link at

Suffice to say, Chicago=like, public art=really like, Chicago+public art = love. Here's the video, shot near dusk.  Oh, and don't forget to check out the photo tab's Flickr stream to see some more of Chicago. Enjoy, and the next video is from Detroit. Promise. :)
