The last time I was at the Crown Fountain the images on the tower were glitchy but this has been resolved. On this day water was only pouring out of one fountain which was a little disappointing but my granddaughter enjoyed the visit anyway.

I could not believe that these monolithic structures were water fountains! How unique to have these as faces. The designer and architect of these tall statues needs to be applauded. A MUST SEE!

It's a toss up whether the Crown Fountain or the Bean are the most interesting public art in Chicago. There located right next to one another, so it won't take much effort to compare the two.

The fountains were being worked on when we visited, so water wasn’t running. It was still a cool experience and I highly recommend.

The changing and appearing faces on these tall fountains was fun. Although the fountains themselves were going at the time, it was a nice whimsical capture of time. Because of the rain, it gave a nice reflection counter piece for a photo

Interesting fountains with changing faces. We stopped in the park to have an afternoon snack and watch the faces change. It was a casual, relaxing place to stop and see all the faces and the kids could get their feet wet and cool off.

We visited in the winter, so the fountain part of this didn't seem to be on, but watching the faces change is fun. This is located in Millenium Park which is also worth going to.

In March the water was not flowing but these two pieces of art are magnificent. There were lots of folks milling around and this is right across the street from the art museum. A few lights burnt out but it did not take away from...More

Crown Fountain is not a swimming pool. It never gets deeper than your ankle. Nobody changes into bathing suits. They wade and kick and splash and little ones think it's heaven. Kick off your shoes and join the fun

The fountain's water feature operates from mid-spring thru' till mid-fall... so I guess it just depends on the weather in any particular year. Mid-fall is so ambiguous!!
