HOUSTON, Texas — Two friends from Chicago aren’t happy about Houston’s new stainless steel sculpture that looks an awful lot like “Cloud Gate” — and they’re not afraid to let everyone know it.
Francisco Ybarra and Blaine Bush missed their flights back to Chicago, so they spent the day in Houston protesting their “Bean.”
Bush posted a photo of the “protest” on social media, saying, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
They are trying to get #notmybean trending on social media.
According to Newsweek, British artist Anish Kapoor, the artist who designed Chicago’s “Bean”, also designed the Houston “Bean.”
