"Art Institute of Chicago 1893 thru Today" Art Institute Tip by BerlinTom

Art Institute, Chicago: 95 reviews and 165 photos

Beautiful Beaux Art Building designed by Sheply, Rutan and Coolidge for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Created as a home for an Art collection, originally used as the International Meeting Hall for the Exposition. Lions sculpted by Edward Kemeys and are part of the Chicago Iconography. Favorites of mine are Old Man with Gold Chain by Rembrandt, the Minature Rooms downstairs, and the architectural remnants from old Chicago Buildings in the main hall.
