I have seen it many times in photos, that iconic silver nugget located in Millennium Park in Downtown Chicago’s Loop community.
Formally, the name of this gigantic mass of metal is Cloud Gate. But, Chicagoans and its visitors have dubbed it a more fitting one –The Bean — for its similarity to said legume.
Designed by artist Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate was built between 2004 and 2006 from 168 stainless steel plates.
Have you visited this popular spot in Chicago?
