Path to Modernism
Master architect Renzo Piano designed the Modern Wing at Chicago’s Art Institute. The building is a 264,000 square foot addition to the museum. This view was taken from the Lurie Garden in Millenium Park . Between the park and the museum, one could spend the better part of a day or two exploring as there are a multitude of photographic opportunities. Last month on my brief visit to the city, I initially thought I would pass the park up as a “tourist attraction”. I’m really glad I didn’t and would definitely list this as a location not to be missed when visiting the “Windy City”.
Please leave a comment below if you like what you see or have any other observations.
Thanks for stopping by,
