Art Institute of Chicago

On Sunday I visited the Art Institute of Chicago.  It was a rainy weekend day, but I wanted to get out and do something besides sit around and watch football.  The museum is quite large and there are som pretty famous and recognizable paintings.

I took quite a few pictures with my iPhone.  It seemed to be OK to do so since a lot of people were taking pictures.  That was until I got yelled at the African art exhibit.  I’m not sure if it was a special exhibit with different rules.  I guess they need to sell more postcards to pay for the exhibit.

You’ll notice in the photo album that there are pictures that look like rooms in houses.  These are actually miniatures- like doll houses, but less functional.  They’re lit so well that they actually look like photographs of full scale houses.

    There were some amazing pieces at the Art Institute and there was that piece. I didn’t catch the name of the artist. There’s always pieces that make you scratch your head and wonder why they’re there.
