also snuck some shots of my favorite pieces in the art institute when back in chicago in april. these are the pieces i always come back to. i have a history with them, a romance, one might say. they are my standbys, my rocks. they make me happy whenever i see them. it's like visiting an old friend!
unfortunately some pieces were in storage or being transferred to the new modern wing when i was visiting back in april. this time around i didn't even get to see the new wing, but i've heard it sucks....but i'm not jumping the gun until i see it myself!
please enjoy, i certainly do!!!
yeah, that's how i feel too.
all time favorite!!!! this thing is HUGE! covers almost a whole wall!
close ups: sooo pretty!
and a few from the chicago historical society:
diorama of the chicago fire. blazin!
and sneaky "illegal" photos of the Chic Chicago exhibit which featured designer and couture clothing from the collections of "chic" chicago women. i would DIE for that green lanvin mess!!!
