WW: Art in Chicago {Linky}

There was a  lot of sweet art that we saw in Chicago. I'm only going to show you a small fraction of what we saw, which is still a lot!

Mica loved looking at Roy Lichtenstein's work!


Did you know he created sculptures? I didn't. I've had so many art history classes; I had no clue he created sculptures.

Almost everything he does is painted in dots. 


I'm not sure who created this piece, but it's flipping HUGE! It's in the interence to the Chicago Art Institute Museum.


This is my favorite sculpture we saw by Jean Dubuffet. I always liked his work, but never saw it in person.


 Now you get to look inside the sculpture.
