Hi guys! I just spent an amazing few days with some of my oldest and dearest friends. I can’t wait to share some of the photographs I took at the places we visited in my own city, but we still have parts of Chicago left to explore.
As is often the case when I travel, my favorite part of my recent trip to Chicago was the art I experienced. I fell in love with the sculpture and interactive art in Millennium Park, and when I visited the Roy Lichtenstein Retrospective at The Art Institute I realized that I was an even bigger fan of his work than I thought.
Okay, time to go inside and escape the heat. I grew up in Louisiana, but I’ve been on the West Coast for 12 years now and I just can’t handle it anymore. Like I get headaches just from being in the sun, even if I’m just sitting there. It’s crazy.
I was excited to see the Lichtenstein exhibit. I’ve always liked his work, even though I was much more obsessed with Warhol and his entourage. We took a look at some of the other artwork before heading to Lichtenstein, but didn’t spend too much time there since we were traveling with a two-year-old. A two-year-old who loves art, exploring new places and things, and an old pro at museums and galleries, but still a two-year-old.
I’ve never been a huge Georgia O’Keefe fan, but this painting really grabbed my attention. I love the color palette.
Now it’s Lichtenstein time. The museum allowed some of the work to be photographed. I’ll show you a few of my favorites, then you can learn more here.
I love visiting art museums. They change my mood and always inspire me. Are you a musuem fan? How often do you visit? Do you take your children?
See you tomorrow! xo
