Yeah, Chicago. This was a sudden adventure. Yet, when am I one to turn down traveling?
Courtney's girlfriend and a friend of her were trying out for America's Next Top Model so Courtney was driving them out there for the casting call. I tagged along for the ride. ;]
Of course I visited the Art Institute of Chicago, one of the best art museum in the country.
Place was huge! Didn't even get a chance to see the whole place! :( Did get to see the following works tho among many many others.
It was kind of surreal to see these famous works in person. To think Van Gogh stood in front of his portrait just as I was contempating each stroke. Crazy. And Seurat designing this new style. Seeing this piece in it's size is remarkable. It's nothing like looking at pictures.
I dropped $75 at the museum. Mostly on postcards and books of postcards.
What a great city. There's no doubt I'll be going back very very soon.
