The National Veterans Art Museum, formerly the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum, located at 4041 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago's six corners neighborhood, is dedicated to displaying and studying art produced by veterans from the Vietnam War and other wars and conflicts. Originally a traveling exhibition, while in Chicago it was viewed by Mayor Richard M. Daley, who was so taken by the power of the art that he immediately insisted that the city provide a permanent home for it. The entrance hall had 58,226 dog tags hanging from the ceiling, representing the US soldiers who died in Vietnam. It and the other exhibits have been described as deeply moving.HistoryThe National Veterans Art Museum is the result of efforts of the Vietnam Veterans Art Group, formed in 1981. The group built a following almost immediately after their first show, Vietnam: Reflexes and Reflections, which opened in October 1981. With increasing popularity and press, the Group grew; veterans from all over the United States began to send in work to be displayed. In 1996 the Vietnam Veterans Art Group established a museum, the only one of its kind at 1801 S. Indiana Ave in Chicago's South Loop.MissionThe museum's mission is to inspire greater understanding of the impact of war through the collection, preservation, and exhibition of art created by veterans of all U.S. military conflicts. The museum displays military and artistic heritage, helping civilians and veterans make connections across diverse ranges of experience. With nearly 2,500 works of art by more than 250 artists, the museum offers visitors of all ages and backgrounds insight into war from the viewpoint of people who were physically and emotionally involved in military conflicts. In addition, the museum provides an artistic outlet for veterans to work through and express their combat and military service experiences.

I am owned and operated by the Chicago Park District. I am one of the largest in the world and am located at Columbus Drive (301 East) and Congress Parkway (500 South) in Grant Park. I'm up and running from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily, typically from April to mid-October, depending on weather. Times are subject to change when large events take place in or around Grant Park. While in operation, every hour on the hour for 20 minutes I produce a fabulous water display and the center jet shoots 150 feet into the air! Beginning at dusk, every hour on the hour for 20 minutes my major water display is accompanied by a major light and music display. The final display of the evening begins at 10:00 p.m. HISTORY One of Chicago's most popular attractions, I opened on May 26, 1927. and was dedicated on August 26, 1927. Edward H. Bennett designed me to represent Lake Michigan with four sea horses, built by Marcel Loyau, to symbolize the four states that touch the lake: Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. Bennett attributed the design specifically to the influence of the Latona Basin in Louis XIV's gardens at Versailles. Kate Buckingham dedicated the structure to the people of Chicago in 1927 in memory of her late brother, Clarence. At the time, she also established a $300,000 trust fund to ensure that the taxpayers would never have to cover all of the repair and upkeep costs associated with me. The funds for the $2.8 million restoration that was done in 1994 came from the Buckingham Fountain Endowment Fund, which the Art Institute of Chicago has administered. Funds from the Buckingham Fountain Endowment Fund also helped fund a portion of the 2008-2009 project. I am constructed of Georgia pink marble and has remained intact (except for a brief theft of two carved fish heads from me), weighing several pounds each. The fish heads were recovered when a salvage place was offered the pieces and the buyer thought they looked very familiar and reported them. STRUCTURE & WATER The water displays are powered by three pumps: - Pump 3: 75 horsepower for 1,600 gallons of water a minute. - Pump 2: 190 horsepower for 5,500 gallons of water a minute. - Pump 1: 250 horsepower for 7,000 gallons of water a minute. I have 134 jets in the following configurations: - 36 jets point upwards from the top basin, including a central jet to produce a 150-foot geyser. - 34 jets at the consoles. - 12 jets in the upper trough that arc into the top bowl. - 12 jets in the inner trough that arc into the upper trough. - 12 jets in the lower trough that arc into the inner trough. - 8 jets spout from the sea horses' mouths. - 20 isolated jets. My water capacity is 1.5 million gallons. Depending on wind conditions, major displays use approximately 14,100 gallons of water per minute conveyed through 134 jets! Water is re-circulated from the base pool after the basins are filled and not drawn from the outside except to replace losses from wind and evaporation. My bottom pool is 280 feet in diameter, the lower basin is 103 feet, the middle basin is 60 feet and the upper basin is 24 feet. The lip of the upper basin is 25 feet above the water in the lower basin. The underground pump room is 35 feet long, 25 feet wide and 25 feet high. LIGHTING Kate Buckingham envisioned a fountain whose effect was that of "soft moonlight." She worked many nights with technicians, testing the various colors of the glass filters and currents to produce an ethereal, mystical aura. I contain 820 lights in the following configurations: - 16 in top bowl. - 72 in upper trough. - 204 in inner trough. - 432 in lower trough. - 24 in the isolated jets. - 60 in the sea horses. - 12 in the bulrushes. The computer known as the Honeywell Excel-Plus is located in my pump house. The computer was moved here from Atlanta, Georgia, during the 1994 renovation. My alarm, a system similar to a store alarm, is monitored and dispatched through Honeywell Central Station in Arlington Heights.
