This Public Art Work is so wonderful. It is fun for all and loved by any. I urge you to research the Artist. Cloud Gate is British artist Anish Kapoor's first public outdoor work installed in the United States. The 110-ton elliptical sculpture is forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect the city's famous skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch provides a "gate" to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture, inviting visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives. Immediately upon its unveiling, Chicagoans dubbed it "The Bean" and the official name was relegated to relative obscurity. The Bean is in Chicago's Millennium Park.
