When we arrived in Chicago, one of the very first things we did was head to the Art Institute of Chicago. It was a beautiful building from the outside,
...and from the inside! There was the older-style museum, and they've recently added a modern wing. I'm guessing you can tell which is which.
I'm so glad I took this shot in black and white. I feel like it could be a picture in their advertisement!
Next you'll see just a few of the beautiful and interesting pieces they have at the museum. I'm guessing you'll recognize some of them.
Can you name any of the artists? I snapped a close-up picture of the description of each item, so I could let you know if you really want the information.
One unique thing they had was a miniature display. Here are two images of all these miniature little boxes you could look through and see rooms with HUGE amounts of detail! It's hard to tell from the pictures (and the reflections) just what was in each room and what size they really were, but they were really amazing!
A statue I was drawn to in the sculpture area.
There you have it! Now you can feel like you were at the Art Institute of Chicago with us!
