As of August 15, access to Grainger Plaza, where the Cloud Gate sculpture (also known as “The Bean” or “El Frijol) is located in Millennium Park, Chicago, will be limited due to maintenance work.

“The work will replace the pavers and make other repairs to improve accessibility, enhance the attraction’s nearly 20-year appearance, and make the visitor experience even better,” said the city’s Tourism Office, @choosechicagomx in its social networks.
