Illinois : Chicago's The Bean

The Bean
Because of its shape, this iconic sculpture is called "The Bean". However, its real name is Cloud Gate, a sculpture made by Indian-born British artist Sir Anish Kapoor. It is the centerpiece of Millenium Park in the loop community area of Chicago.

The Bean was the result of a design competition and inspired by liquid mercury. It was unveiled in an incomplete form during Millenium Park's grand opening in 2004. It was formally dedicated in 2006 and has since gained considerable popularity among local and international tourists.
