Houston has just installed a sculpture called "Cloud Column." It was created by British sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor... the same artist who did Chicago's "Cloud Gate."
Its shaped just like our very own 'the bean' in Millennium Park. It’s shiny and made of stainless steel.
The only big difference is that it stands upright, not on its side like in Chicago.
What a rip off!!
Houston: Cloud Column has landed at @mfahouston. The sequel to Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate (aka the Bean) in Chicago, Houston’s version stands upright, like a rocket, and shows the imperfections of hand-hammering. This edition was originally crafted for the British Museum in London, but that didn’t work out, so their loss is our gain! Expecting you all to have new profile pics soon 😂#housrts #houston #cloudgate #cloudcolumn #houston #txarts #texarts #sculpture
