Retroblogging: Chicago Trip 2012, Art Institute

Art Institute of Chicago, January 2012
 What? Really? You know, sometimes I just don't "get" modern/contemporary "art."

 Kari more closely examines the "art"
 and follows the directions. What a good art patron!
Of course, then we had to schlep that rolled up piece of "art" all over Chicago and the trains.
