Chicago’s iconic “The Bean” sculpture reopens to the public after almost a year of work

ChicagoOne of the most popular tourist attractions in Chicagoknown as “The Bean,” reopened to the public on Sunday after almost a year of renovations and work.

Work began in August last year, and fences around the iconic sculpture limited close access to visitors. Work on the plaza surrounding the sculpture included new stairs, accessible ramps and a waterproofing system, according to Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

The bean-shaped sculpture by artist Anish Kapoor is formally known as “Cloud Gate” and weighs 110 tons.

It is a very popular tourist attraction located near Michigan Avenue, ideal for taking selfies due to its reflective surface inspired by liquid mercury. Views of skyscrapers and crowds are reflected in the Millennium Park sculpture.

“Visitors can once again have full access to Anish Kapoor’s iconic Chicago Cloud Gate,” city ​​officials said in a statement Sunday. “Come back and take your #selfie!”
