My best friend is in town! In my Googling of things to do this past weekend, I discovered that Bank of America has a program through which they offer free admission to select museums for BoA cardholders. Since I love both museums and free things, I jumped on that like woah, and we decided to check out the Art Institute of Chicago. I've only been about twice previously, once to see a specific exhibit to the exclusion of many other works, so my excitement level reached pretty outrageous levels.
We decided to take this opportunity to focus on the museum's Impressionist collection, a truly admirable grouping of works from that movement. I've always most loved Monet's paintings of Charing Cross Bridge and Waterloo Bridge in London. The mellow mood calms me enormously.
Have you ever had the pleasure of visiting the Art Institute?
