Happy Birthday to Picasso's gift to Chicago!
    Forty years ago today.


    At 40 we still don't know what you are. But we love you.

    Even though you've been superseded a bit by

    Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate in Millennium Park.

    Which came first, the monkey or the egg?

    Picasso's arrived when Chicago still had tinges of "rust-belt city." (1967)
    Kapoor's "Cloud Gate" of 2006 shows off our new beaming optimism.

    I love them both.
