Full moon at the Bean

£16.50

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.
