Images from the Art Institute of Chicago

This past weekend, I was privileged to spend a few days in the Windy City for work as our company attended the 60th Anniversary RainSoft Convention in Chicago!  After an opening night private party at the House of Blues, we spent a whirlwind 72 hours learning, networking and seeing as much as we could of the city.  A couple of the guys joined me during some down time to visit the Art Institute of Chicago before we left.  The four hours we had weren't enough to really scratch the surface of one of the largest collections of art in the country!  We had to use our maps and hit the highlights before visiting their current special exhibit, Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary- a journey through around 100 works of art from one of my favorite surrealists.  With dimly lit passageways, black walls and concentrated lighting, AIC created a haunting environment for the body of work.  In contrast to the low roar throughout the rest of the museum, Magritte's vibrant creations glowed in stunned silence as the crowd navigated the halls of the exhibit.  It was truly an experience I'll never forget.  Though this special exhibit is confined to my own memories due to a no-photography policy, I can however share with you some other images from throughout their collection... enjoy!
