Art Institute of Chicago

It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and the perfect opportunity to check out the Art Institute of Chicago located in Grant Park. The collection contains more than 300,000 works of art ranging from early Japanese prints to modern American art. I had no idea what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised to discover a few very familiar pieces.
