My "Art Institute of Chicago" Visit

"Art Institute of Chicago" is really huge. I was just able to spend near to an hour to visit this place. But you can easily spend and enjoy looking at the place for an hours even if you do not understand anything about paintings and sculptures. The institute gives you a flyer which has "What to see in an Hour" which is overwhelming but doable in a hour. Jut keep following the flyer. You might end of taking a little more than a hour. May be 1 hour 15 minutes.

This is what I did. In addition to flyer suggestion, I also went and saw the picture of Swami Vivekananda as Chicago is the place where Vivekananda gave his famous speech introducing Hindu religion to the world.

George Seurat's A Sunday on La

* George Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte - 1884. Seurat took 2 years to paint this picture. Seurat contrasted miniature dots of colors that, through optical unification, form a single hue in the viewer's eye. Try to see the colors in the painting.
