The Chicago Art Institute

Welcome to the Chicago Art Institute.  Home to many priceless works of art, it’s an incredible way to spend an afternoon, yet you probably still won’t see everything worth seeing.  Anyways, ever since I was a child that was wearing out my vhs copy of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off I’ve wanted to go there.

Below is the Seurat’s renowned “A Sunday in the Park”, where Cameron Frye iconically stands in awe and wonder.  Alan Ruck did all he needed to do in this scene to express Cameron’s confusion and fear and I think anyone who has ever submersed themselves in this film knows what I’m talking about.  A magical moment indeed.

 Below, Ferris and company  with Gustave Caillebotte’s Paris Street; Rainy Day, 1876-1877

below, Ferris and co. admire 3 Picasso works, 2 of which (The Red Armchair, 1981 on the far left, and Portrait of Sylvette David, 1954 middle) I was able to find still in the museum.

Sadly when I visited in December of 2009, Chagall’s American Windows (below) was in storage, but should be out on display by now.

 you will also find historic works like Grant Wood’s American Gothic among many others

above: unknown (help) below: Cassat’s “The Child’s Bath”
