The Crown Fountain is an interactive work of public art , named in honor of Chicago's Crown family  and it opened in July 2004. The fountain is composed of a black granite reflecting pool placed between a pair of transparent glass brick towers. The towers are 50 feet (15.2 m) tall, and use light-emitting diodes behind the bricks to display digital videos on their inward faces. 

The two towers spouts  through a nozzle on each tower's front face. To achieve the effect in which water appears to be flowing from subjects' mouths, each video has a segment where the subject's lips are puckered, which is then timed to correspond to the spouting water, reminiscent of gargoyle fountains; this happens roughly every five minutes. The park and fountain are open to the public.

Crowed Tower is  Located in downtown of chicago,it is also
part of millennium park.It is so populer espceally for children who likes to play with water.
