Cloud Gate aka "Bean" by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor. It is in Millennium Park, Chicago.

Constructed between 2004 and 2006, made up of stainless steel plates welded together, its highly polished exterior has no visible seams. It is 33 by 66 by 42 feet (10 by 20 by 13 m), and weighs 110 tons...

Chicago is an amazing, wonderful city. It's shame how bad the crime is right now.

I'm going to Chicago next month on October 20th and I was wondering what's there to do never been I'm mostly going because I'm a fan of the mobster scene such as Al Capone and Dillinger and some of the museums

A beautiful perspective put into another beautiful perspective. Very beautiful (as if I didn't say that enough).

biggest waste of taxpayer money I have ever seen. Now they have to pay a lot of money to keep it polished.
