The works in the square that surrounds the sculpture included new stairs, accessible ramps and a waterproofing system, according to the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events of Chicago.

The sculpture in the form of bean by artist Anish Kapoor is formally known as “Cloud Gate” and weighs 110 tons.

It is a very busy tourist attraction located near the avenue Michigan, special for taking selfies due to its reflective surface inspired by liquid mercury. Views of skyscrapers and crowds are reflected in the Millennium Park sculpture.
