Full moon at the Bean


Chicago’s most popular sights. The Bean is located in Millennium Park, the lakefront park in Chicago’s downtown Loop. It was designed by internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor.

The 110-ton elliptical sculpture is forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect Chicago’s famous skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch provides a "gate" to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture, inviting visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives.

Inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high.
