Review: Gilfoyle, Millennium Park

jacket imageChicago Magazine recently highlighted Timothy J. Gilfoyle’s Millennium Park: Creating a Chicago Landmark: "Loyola history professor Timothy Gilfoyle captures all the soaring architectural drama, petty human squabbling, and commendable leadership behind the city’s newest civic jewel in Millennium Park, out this month. Right on time: The park celebrates its second anniversary in July."
Part park, part outdoor art museum, part cultural center, and part performance space, Millennium Park is now an unprecedented combination of distinctive architecture, monumental sculpture, and innovative landscaping. Gilfoyle’s thoroughly readable and lavishly illustrated history of Millennium Park is a wonderful testament to this twenty-first century landmark.
