    Kapoor's controversial multimillion dollar public art. A woman takes pics of people jumping in front of "the bean" & posts them @4p to her FB page. Had a gallery showing & plans a book. fun photo op!

    Super awesome place. Make sure you bring a camera with lots of space. Endless possibilities for pictures
  • Jonathan F.
    This looks like none of its names or nicknames to me. However, it looks best when clean and not covered in bird droppings. It's best just after it snows.

    I mean, i'll be honest it's a big silver bean, but you know what? It's pretty cool and so is the city around it. Visit Chicago if you can.

    When taking pictures, don't just stand there. If you sick your arms or legs out you'll get a shot with fun house mirror effects.
