Millennium Fountain

Dan Kainz
American b. 1948
Millennium Fountain

The fountain, sometimes known as a water-sculpture,  was created by sculptor Dan Kainz of Pennsylvania.  A committee of Elmhurst residents and city employees selected the design from seventeen entries.  The artist's concept statement in part said, "Unlike a traditional fountain, this sculpture is designed to be interactive and approachable. My intent is to provide a sensory experience..."  It was dedicated in 2002.
