You know our current Rearview subject, the immediately iconic Cloud Gate. But, should you find yourself in New York in the next couple months, you may want to meet its conceptual cousin, Sky Mirror. Today's Times looks at sculptor Anish Kapoor's burgeoning public art career, one driven by work that viewers see as "a kind of populist gift." (The story is accompanied by a slideshow of some of Kapoor's gallery-bound work.)
