The reason it was called Cloud Gate

Chicagoans call Anish Kapoor’s Millennium Park sculpture The Bean, but its formal name is Cloud Gate.

Viewed from the plaza level it’s easy to understand how the sculpture came by its nickname. Viewed from above in the right kind of weather conditions, it’s a gateway to and from the clouds.
