Here are some more details on my visit to the new Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, which opens this Saturday. Enjoy! As before, this was originally published on Gals' Guide.
A view of the new north entrance from the west.
The lovely main lobby on the first floor, with a view to the second.
The next three shots give you a sense of some of the architectural details. I know the shades are down and it's rainy, but the view to the north is really exquisite.
Hope you enjoyed these! Click on any of the images to enlarge, and don't forget to check this out yourself starting this Saturday.
Here's a hot item I just posted on Gals' Guide Chicago!
Exciting news, ladies of Chicagoland who like art…this afternoon, I'm going to get a chance to see the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute! There's no flash photography allowed, but if I can manage to sneak a few shots with my phone I will certainly do so. I'm hoping we get to check out the new ramp that leads from Millennium Park into the new north entrance; word is that the addition of the wing means a bigger Modern Art collection for AIC, which I'm also thrilled for. Haters can stick to the south side of the museum. ;)
More this evening!
