Designed by the famous artist Anish Kapoor, this mirror-like object is commonly referred to as "The Bean" by locals. It's a great photo opportunity because you can see your reflection in the sculpture with the Chicago skyline as the perfect backdrop.
This dramatic piece of public art combines video with interactive water features for a one-of-a-kind urban landmark. In the summer, you'll find kids splashing around the fountain to cool down from the hot Chicago days.
