Art Institute of Chicago FTW!

I walked into AIC expecting to see some lesser known artists and relax. The first exhibit room I entered was filled with ORIGINAL MONETS! Then Renoir, Rodin, Manet...my head was exploding as I ran around seeing every screen saver I've ever installed in person.

So if you're planning to hit up an art museum in a new town make sure to google first or end up risking myocardial infarction like I did ;)

I'm with you there, Anny. Granted, I should have been aware that my Philadelphia Museum of Art had more "treasures," but was so unprepared for seeing Renoir's "The Great Bathers" full size.

*gape. gape. blink. gape.*

I'm enjoying catching up on your style suggestions!
