Maybe next time I visit Chicago, I'll have to stop by again and see what new & exciting pocket art is available : ) I'm thinking my visit into the city may have been the cause of the relapse in this cold ... I thought I was pretty much ok & on the mend ... and may have over-done it. I visited Millenium Park, during the sleet & rain storm, yeah, of course - typical February weather in Chicago -- because I just HAD TO SEE the Ice Museum. Yes, well worth it. A wall of ice in different colors. And the weather just enhanced the beauty. Tons of photographs HERE.
I did enjoy the The E. M. Bakwin Collection of Indonesian Textiles exhibit PLUS, had a ticket to view the Homer & Hopper Exhibits at the Art Institute of Chicago.
I hope to get back into the city to see the The Keiskamma Altarpiece, March 27 - May 11, 2008. Maybe visit City Stitcher, a needlepoint store. And, would like to see the Embroidered Myths and Everyday Stories exhibit. Big plans ... looking forward to another trek : )
