Cloud Gate on the AT&T Plaza in Centennial Park, Chicago, IL
Inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high. Cloud Gate was made possible by a gift from AT&T to the City of Chicago.
We took the train into Chicago on Friday for a picnic in Millennium Park while Jim made a sales call. Chicago is a beautiful town with lots to do. The park has a two fountain towers with hundreds of kids playing in the cool water. The inside of the towers are changing faces and wouldn't you know it, Obama's face is on one of the walls. When his face appeared no one really cared. After lunch we watched the kids play in the water. We made our way back to the train station for the 3:40 home. It is an hour and 30minutes by train from Elburn, IL to downtown Chicago.
That's us next to the "Bean"
