Various locations – starting from the Aon Building, to the Blue Cross Blue Shields Building, then the Prudential I Plaza, and then to the Pritzker Military Library and then to the Wintrust Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Money Museum and lastly the Chicago Temple (First Methodist Temple). It was a wet miserable day, but thousands of people and photographers came out to the event. And I walked over 4.8 miles and climbed an equivalent of 25 floors!

There were actually two of them there. This is the first one that we saw that day.

A few days ago, sculptures of dogs variously decorated sprouted up on the Magnificent Mile of Chicago, reminiscent of the painted horses three years ago and the mega-success of Cows on Parade in 1999. The dogs are of the form of a German Shepherd painted in whatever style the artist(s) imagine their representation to be.
Dubbed as K-9s for Cops, these fiberglass canines will be dotting the Mag mile during the summer. The art installations are a collaboration between the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation and Chicago PAWS. The initiative honors police officers who died or were injured in the line of duty. There will be about two hundred of these dogs that will be eventually auctioned off to benefit PAWS Chicago in its effort to provide free veterinary care and neutering services to low-income residents.
Last July 15, 360Chicago and Art.of.Chi organized a sunrise shoot at 1,000 feet above at the 360Chicago observation deck. So we went up there from just before 5 o’clock in the morning and leaving just after 6. I had to take a cab because there were no buses running yet at those times to bring me there in time for the sunrise at 5:30 AM.
But it was quite well worth it.
