Sunday Afternoon at the Art Institute

Our favorite stop: the giftshop!

Lorenzo meet Jeff

A rainy day and what better way to spend it than roaming through the galleries? Maggie and I headed for the photography exhibit of Jeff Wall. His works are large back lit panels that have to be experienced in person.

I wandered upstairs to view the Gates of Paradise. Exquisite, old, refined, Biblical. Three panels from Florence. Meet Lorenzo Ghiberti.

Oh, to be at the Art Institute instead of where you are this very moment - Monday, 9:11AM, August 27!

Thanks for this lovely, inspiring post. I'm with you on the Gift Shop thing, too!
