Art institute of chicago/ #chicago
shielded by an iconic pair of bronze lions, the chicago art institute contains a permanent collection of more than 300,000 works of art, displayed in a complex that spans galleries and hallways.
you will find everything from japanese prints to ancient greek sculptures among the pieces stored in the museum's central galleries. in addition to classic paintings such as nighthawks by edward hopper and american gothic by grant wood.
for something a little more contemporary, you can head to the modern wing of renzo piano, which shows the architecture of the museum and the design collection, as well as the art of the 20th and 21st century.
