When Snow Creates a Work of Art on a Work of Art

leave a comment »


I don’t know for sure, but I suspect the Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park in Chicago has a stainless steel outer shell.

If so, I wouldn’t think that snow could cling to it. But as this image shows, it does. It might be a factor of cold and heavy snow.

The snow on this side of the sculpture, through, has begun to break up and slide off. I wonder how much of that was due to it receiving “help” from visitors.

The patterns created by the snow have produced their own work of art that must be enjoyed quickly before it melts and or falls away.
