The next photo shows what I am calling "furtive crochet" - maybe there's a better name for it. Someone crocheted the pole of a street sign in front of the Art Institute of Chicago! It's kind of like a harmless graffiti done by a sneaky crafter. I loved it!
The Art Institute was great, but many of the contemporary exhibits are currently closed for remodeling. Bummer.
But we went to the Museum of Contemporary Art on another day, which made up for the disappointing Art Institute visit. Jeff Koons are was on display - very colorful and fun, except that some of it got offensive. While looking at some of the other art, my husband would say "I could do that." But he hasn't! If he did, he'd be famous. I guess I enjoyed the museum more than he did. But I took a photo of him watching the one thing he liked at the museum, a video of one thing leading to another, like balloons rolling down a board and breaking, causing a fire, making something else tip over, etc. It was pretty fascinating, I have to admit.
