There's a new sculpture going up at Millennium Park downtown. It's a 20 foot by 30 foot by 60 foot mirrored oval shape that's sure to be a real eye-catcher when it's unveiled. The sculptor has not officially named the sculpture yet, so it's just being referred to as The Bean. You can see a picture of it here (not an actual image, since the sculpture's still being assembled) and you can follow the building of the sculpture over at Well, you WOULD be able to follow it, except that they're building the sculpture under a tent. (The webcam goes inside the tent on May 1st.)
