The Dallas Cowboys have a new addition to their multi-billion dollar stadium. The three story high hanging stainless steel mirror was unveiled this weekend to football fans gazed at the new artwork. Sculpturist Anish Kapoor, whose name came to recognition by the art community after releasing, “The Bean,” an alias for Chicago’s Cloud Gate, manufactured the mirror which is a whopping 35 feet in diameter.
The mirror hangs above the stadium and allows onlookers to gaze at the wide-open Texas sky on the eastern side of the sculpture. Also, filling in the rest of the reflection are the thousands of football fans who crowd the stadium each Sunday. No doubt that, “Sky Mirror,” as it’s appropriately named, is intended to accentuate the majesty of the stadium and its larger than life personality.
In an interview with the Ft. Worth Star Telegram, Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones had no problem boasting about the price tag of, “Sky Mirror.”
“We spent $10 million on Sky Mirror, and $4 for the installation” said Jones during his interview. You can read the rest of the article yourself here http://www.star-telegram.com/2013/10/11/5240232/anish-kapoors-sky-mirror-isa-multimillion.html.
