I feel this is one of the greatest examples of how art is an experience, not just something you look at. The only other place I’ve seen this many people congregate around art is at The Metropolitan in Manhattan.
I love how the smooth, reflective curves of The Bean contrast with the sharp lines and angles of the skyscrapers. I enjoyed observing people find themselves on the metallic, mirror-like surface, seeing their delight upon finding their reflections and posing for pictures. I could sit there and watch people all day.
Me and a few of my besties.
My friend, Casey.
