I recently received the best gift a gal could as for: a membership to the Chicago Art Institute.
That means I can go there whenever I want! for free! and bring a friend.
Here are some photos from my latest art filled lunch break.
It was fun to see some similarities between my sneakers and a few paintings.
Innovative composition with the leg reflections. I like the log best. Is that a Warhol or Pollock? 🙂
Thanks, John! The log is really cool isn’t it? It’s huge– takes up a whole room.
The artist’s name is Charles Ray. Pretty rockin’, huh?
I also like that one with the leg reflections very much!!! Nice post.
thanks so much!
LOVE it!!! You are right, a trip to the Art Museum is pretty epic. Great pics as well.
thanks so much 🙂
The room with the spilled pile made me look O.o but I do enjoy all the pieces 🙂
Isn’t that interesting! It’s by a Cuban artist, Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
It’s supposed to be a portrait of his partner. pretty cool portrait.
Very cool! I could spend endless hours here 🙂
Fly shots! The last image reminds me of this photo project where they found matching landscapes to go with certain clothes. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2416671/Joseph-Ford-Aerial-photographs-landscapes-match-clothing.html
Oh.. and are you using the VSCO-cam app? The images have that great authentic look to them.
thank you, Niel! and yes, I did use vsco-cam for these particular photos. good eye!
I can’t imagine a better gift! How awesome!
I thought it was a great idea!
