I visited The Art Institute of Chicago 14 years ago and I’ve always wanted to go back. I loved seeing some of the paintings I recognized from the board game Masterpiece that I played with as a child. For me it was an experience I’ll never forget and because I love art it has been one of the highlights in my life.
Perhaps you’ll marvel at the centuries of pure art as I did. Even if you don’t have a passion for art, like I do, there is something inspiring about visiting The Art Institute of Chicago and standing in front of a that painting worth millions. You”ll find yourself transported to era after era as you gaze at the art that captures moments in history.
