Chicago Cultural Center, the illuminated floor that runs under the Tiffany Glass domed ceiling.

Caught a couple of lectures at the Chicago Humanities Festival this morning; both of them re apocalyptic themes (comets as harbingers & the Mayan 9th cent. collapse), and each a little too generalized to be of any great interest.

But, this being Chicago, each shared the distinction of being conducted in striking proximity to a stunning Tiffany Glass
domed ceiling (the other one was at the Art Institute), which isn't something you get to see every day.

Unless, of course, you're in Chicago's Loop every day. ;)

Posting by cameraphone, after the fact.

I love the Chicago Cultural Center... and I know exactly where this is! I've spent HOURS in that building just walking around. Its so easy to miss it and its such a gorgeous building. This photo, like most of your photos, makes me happy :)
