Chicago's newest park hosts one of the strangest, most extraterrestrial sculpture that anyone can touch, lean on, and be thoroughly amused by. The Bean is situated on a level just overlooking the Michigan Avenue skating rink. From the rink it peeks its silver body over to watch the humans below. Standing before The Bean, a person is about a fifth of the height of the sculpture, and The Bean is about 40 feet long, with a large opening underneath. Well, it’s just like a lima bean, but all silver and reflective. Fingerprints adorn the mirror-like finish, and the police could fingerprint half of Illinois just here.
