Kapoor Sculpture Under Construction

Anish Kapoor is world-renowned for his large art sculptures, and this new addition to the park will really be something spectacular to see. This will be the artist's first permanent piece in the United States, and will continue Chicago's tradition of providing exceptional public art to its citizens.

Looking at the where the Kapoor will be from atop

Originally the piece thought to have been assembled somewhere else, then brought by barge to Chicago, but this did not occur due to various issues. The latest news is that the piece will not be ready for the official opening of the park, but will be on view for the public to see. They are shooting for a September completion date, and the sculpture has been named Cloud Gate. Live web cam by US Equities can be found here. All that is left is to weld and polish the sculpture to a seamless structure.
