What people are saying:

Its actually a worth while little stop cos the bean is situated right between some really cool buildings and you can get some iconic photos and the walk around that area is really cool. You dont even need to walk in any specific dirction the whole area is cool

    Very cool sculpture in Millennium Park

    Very cool sculpture, by Anish Kapoor, in the center of Millennium Park. Definitely worth checking out. It reflects and distorts images.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Cloud Gate is also known as The Bean because it looks like a bean. It is located in Chicago"s Millennium Park. The sleek exterior of this sculpture reflects the distorted Chicago skyline, making it a popular photography spot for tourists in Chicago. Cloud Gate is known as a symbolic and innovative work. The mirror effect of the statue is reminiscent of the distorting mirrors in previous amusement parks.But there is a significant use for it to make the giant Cloud Gate look much lighter.
