Aside from the NAEA convention, Chicago was perfect!
I stayed at The Palmer House hotel…and as soon as I walked in I felt like I was in a movie. The peacock doors, grand lobby, and amazing art made this one of my favorite hotels.
We had great weather, even though it was a little windy at times. I took a nice walk around the city…Millennium Park was lovely, and it wasn’t too crowded. I also got to spend A LOT of time in the Art Institute of Chicago. Wow…I love museums, its so amazing to see how art changes through time. Its beautiful how art that was created hundreds of years ago can invoke feelings and thoughts in any moment, at any time. Art truly shows that time travel exists.
The Art Institute was simply awesome. I got to see Van Gogh’s three bedroom paintings… I had no idea he painted three of them. It was like I was looking in an art textbook!
Along my walking tour around the city I found an old Italian restaurant and an amazing gold statue called the Victory of Samothrace. I also took a nice pub tour with my two teaching artist friends Brandon and Dana.
<3 Thank you Chicago!
