Art Institute

Our first day in Chicago was crystal clear and was mainly spent outdoors, looking up at the buildings. But our second was gray and we spent the middle of the day at the Art Institute of Chicago, catching up on our art and winding up with sore ankles. It's amazing how much more tiring it can be to wander museums than to walk all day outside. We need to figure out how to do this in smaller doses.

The big exhibit was built around Van Gogh's bedroom - three versions of which were on display, including the one that actually lives in Chicago. But there was also other stuff by Van Gogh and a lot of material to provide context.

Of course, there was plenty of other material to look at, from Seurat to O'Keefe.
