The Bean

Called "The Bean" by locals, Cloud Gate is a magnificent public sculpture on AT&T Plaza in Millennium Park. Created by artist Anish Kapoor, the Bean is gigantic elliptical sculpture made of unified steel plates. Resembling a mammoth drop of liquid mercury, Cloud Gate’s mirrored surface reflects Chicago’s skyline and the clouds above. Snap a photo to see your image from unique perspectives.
