What I Learned At The Art Institute Of Chicago

1. “The elevation of mundane objects to artistic subjects appealed to Modernists.” And to me.

“Saw” by Stuart Davis

2. Don’t lean too close to the paintings. That alarm is loud!

3. Don’t even THINK about talking on your phone in the galleries.

4. James Whistler painted more than just his mother. LOTS more.

5. Jackson Pollock, Cy Twombly, and Willem de Kooning are the emperors who wear no clothing.

Have you ever done something in an art museum that the guards had to reprimand you for? Do tell! What do you think of Jackson, Cy and Willem? Do you like “Saw” by Stuart Davis?
