The Art Institute of Chicago Building (1893 structure built as the World's Congress Auxiliary Building) houses the Art Institute of Chicago, and is located in the Chicago Landmark Historic Michigan Boulevard District in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. The building is also located in Grant Park on the east side of Michigan Avenue, and marks the third address for the Art Institute. The building was built for the joint purpose of accommodating the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and subsequently the Art Institute. The core of the current complex, located opposite Adams Street, officially opened to the public on December 8, 1893 and was renamed the Allerton Building in 1968.

There have been numerous building additions over the years. The most recent addition is the Modern Wing.. This new building increases gallery space by 33% and accommodates new educational facilities. It opened to the public on May 16, 2009.

    64. 64. “Although Milles studies in Paris, where Auguste Rodin was one of his teachers, his fountains and memorials in his native Sweden and in the US represent a conscious departure from the naturalism that dominated sculpture at the turn of the century...”
    65. 65. “They reflect the artists independent spirit, his appreciation of classical and Gothic sculptures and his very strong Nordic roots...”
    66. 66. “These qualities are seen in the way Milles imbued his rather elongated and stylized Tritons, characters from Greek mythology, with the spirit of water deities from Scandinavian chronicles...”
    67. 67. Carl Milles (1875- 1955) was a Swedish sculptor, best known for his fountains.
