Cloud Gate at Millennium Park

A marvellous piece of artwork, Cloud Gate – referred to by locals as “The Bean”, for obvious reasons – it is a public sculpture by talented British artist Anish Kapoor. This place at the Millennium Park was an exciting spot for shutterbugs. The monument was chosen from 30 different artists. Also this was scheduled to go public during 2004 – but somehow the launch got delayed and this entire thing is made of pure steel plates and polished to maintain the shine. Entire surface is glossy and shines like a mercury droplet fallen from the sky. The maintenance of this architecture is huge and the concave structure at the bottom center is called the navel. You can see 1000s of people clicking photographs each day. This is been recognized locally and globally both. An amazing piece of artwork.
