Opposite Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park stands a majestic and quaint building that is one of Chicago’s iconic buildings, the Cultural Center. It was founded in 1897 and was originally preserved as a public library in Chicago, and was established as a cultural center for the public in 1991. Every day, there are a variety of artistic exhibitions, such as art exhibitions, movie theaters, concerts, dramas, dances, etc. You don’t want to miss the American live classical concerts.
Under the influence of pure art, the whole building is complete and magnificent, with red carpet stairs, Roman arches, and the European classical style of the Renaissance can be seen inside and outside. Climbing up the stairs, you find that the white walls in the cultural center are made of special marble in Italy, and the mosaics of colorful mosaics are meticulously inlaid. The 11.5-meter Tiffany glass-colored dome makes the building the best in the world because it is the world's largest Tiffany dome.
