A Night Time View Of 'The Bean' Or Cloud Gate In Chicago Illinois Captured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The Cloud Gate Sculpture in Chicago is known by local people as 'The Bean' due to its shape. In the picture on this attractive acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gift, it can be seen that this sculpture is just as impressive to see at night time as it is during the day. Whatever time of day it is 'The Bean' is one of the most popular sights in Chicago to photograph. In 2005 the City of Chicago tried to implement a permit system to take photographs at the sculpture but, to the joy of all visitors, the attempt failed.
