Pope Francis' favorite painting, Chagall's White Crucifixion, returns to The Art Institute of Chicago.  I learned all this through social media so I planned my visit to the museum.

Coloring the Van Gogh Bedroom

After attending the exhibit of Van Gogh's Bedrooms at The Art Institute of Chicago, I've become a bit obsessed with the museum itself and Van Gogh's works.  As a life-long Chicago resident, the exhibit prompted me to become a member of the museum and I'm so glad I did!

Signs of Catholicism in the Thorne Miniature Rooms at The Art Institute

Not too long ago, I wrote about how I found God in Van Gogh's bedrooms at The Art Institute.  My friend and I had such a good time that we planned another visit.  This time we went to see the Thorne Miniature Rooms.  These beautiful little rooms had us searching for the tiniest details.  Sometimes we would find eyeglasses on a table.  Chess sets were common as were the tiny place settings for the next meal.

I made a trip to The Art Institute of Chicago to see the Van Gogh's Bedrooms exhibit.  The exhibit runs through May 10, 2016.  I know the phrase "must see" is overused, but this really is a one of a kind exhibit that is being done only in Chicago, so it really is a "must see."
