Does anyone actually call “The Bean” by it’s official name?

When it’s creator, Anish Kapoor, originally named it, he called it “Cloud Gate”, but I don’t know anyone who really calls it that.

Anyway, Kapoor was back in Chicago yesterday to check out his handiwork for the first time since 2006!

He even took a selfie with it!

Funny thing is, Kapoor told the Sun-Times that he doesn’t mind that Chicago nicknamed it “The Bean.”

He says that it gives the sculpture it’s own language.

For me, I never really thought about someone creating “The Bean.”

It just sorta looks like it fell there in Millennium Park!
