Chicago Mosaics

Chagall mosaic
 Last week we took a 2 day just for fun trip to Chicago. Seeing this magnificent mosaic was in the top three of my to-do list.

The mosaic covers four sides of a large rectangle.

We also found some lovely mosaics in the lobby of our hotel. Congress Avenue Hotel, built in 1893.

Watermarks, one of four community produced mosaic benches by Navy Pier.

The mosaic artist of Mosaic Geek blog lists several other mosaic art works from when she was in Chicago for the Society of American Mosaic Artist convention. I wish I had been able to take this mosaic walking tour, but just walking around the city without a list was very good for public art spotting.
