What is the actual name of “The Bean” sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park?
When Chicago tourists and residents aren’t too busy practicing their best Mike Ditka impersonation and munching on Garrett’s popcorn, they’re often congregating at Cloud Gate, the iconic, reflective and bean-shaped sculpture in Millennium Park.
Many a person has crowded around the installation hoping to get some interesting selfies with the object that’s come to be locally known as “the Bean.” Anish Kapoor, who created Cloud Gate, allegedly isn’t fond of the colloquial moniker.
One can only wonder about his thoughts regarding the many fingerprints on the sculpture’s reflective surface. Source: Mental Floss
