The new sculpture (that hasn't even been completely constructed!) at Millennium Park nicknamed "The Bean" now has an official name: "Cloud Gate." The sculpture's creator, Anish Kapoor, predicts the sculpture will not be finished until September. (Of which year, Kapoor did not say.) In the meantime, don't forget that you can always keep an eye on "Cloud Gate" via webcam.
