Museum Journal

During my time in Chicago for the National Art Education Association Conference I visited The Art Institute of Chicago. It is quite a spectacular museum albeit crowded the day I went. Because I didn’t have a lot of time at the museum I tried to look everywhere but had to quickly. The iconic images that I had learned about in my art history classes at Kent State jumped out to me. It was amazing to see the works that my professors were talking about in person! Georges Seurat, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte was one that I had spent time discussing in my Art History 2 class. Also, works by Monet and Paris Street; Rainy Day by artist Gustave Caillebotte stood out to me from lectures. I can’t wait to go back to this exceptional museum!
