Chicago ‘Bean’

‘Cloud Gate’ by the Indian-English artist and sculptor Anish Kapoor, is a huge stainless steel bean which acts like a mirror reflecting the skyscrapers surrounding its location in the Millennium Park in Chicago, USA. The Park itself is a rooftop garden, and the ‘bean’, as citizens of Chicago have nicknamed it, is another three storeys high. The Millennium Park opened in July 2004, having cost $475 million. The bean is Anish Kapoor’s first public work in the USA.
