Cloud Gate

Besides preparing to host Thanksgiving, one of the reasons I haven't written many posts recently is that I took a 5 day vacay to spend some time with my sister in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While there, we did an overnight stay in nearby Chicago, where we visited Millennium Park. The park opened in July 2004, and features many interesting pieces of sculpture and architecture. I loved the reflective Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor created from polished stainless steel plates.

If the name Anish Kapoor seems familiar, you may recall that I previously posted a photo of his aluminum sculpture located here in Toronto on Front Street West:

Untitled (Mountain)

Anish Kapoor is a master of metal. Visit his website for more details about his works.
