Giant Jelly Bean

Giant Jelly Bean

With a stunning seamless form and mirror like finish, this giant jelly bean is one of the most impressive and interactive public sculptures of recent times.  Located in Chicago’s Millennium Park it’s made of 168 highly polished stainless steel plates, and stands at 33 feet high, 66 feet long, 42 feet wide and weighs 110 tons.  In the center is a 9ft high tunnel, allowing you to be surrounded by the mirrored form and experience being reflected/morphed like never before.  The success of Anish Kapoor’s sculpture has to be that all walks of life can enjoy and interact with this truly brilliant piece of art.
