Photo of the Day: GAR Rotunda

The Chicago Cultural Center (previously the main branch of the Chicago Public Library) houses two eye-popping domes. ┬áThis one is the GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) Rotunda, and the other was designed by Louis Tiffany. ┬áThis room is a memorial to the Union soldiers who gave their lives in the Civil War; it’s one of the most beautiful and peaceful rooms in Chicago.
