Traveling and Art

Oh, did I forget to say that I went to England, and Mexico, and California yesterday? My bad.

Well, ok, actually, I was only in the houses, not exploring outside.

All right... I wasn't exactly in the houses, but I was looking inside them.

Fine, I wasn't actually looking at real houses... I was looking at miniature houses. In the art museum. Really, really tiny houses.

Experiencing art feels a bit like traveling. Maybe that's part of what's so enchanting about it to me.

But really, you should take a look at Thorne Miniature Rooms online, and then go to the Art Institute of Chicago and see them for yourself some day. They are stunning, intricate, and just captivating and immersive!

Even though this was my third time at the Art Museum (in three weeks), there was still so much to see that I hadn't seen yet. Brynna (my RA) and I went there on Thursday and meandered through exhibitions, enjoying every minute of history, beauty and aesthetics. These are all things I value so much, and art just exemplifies all of those features perfectly! It's inspiring, and so refreshing.

I have been thankful for the Winter Free Days at the Art Institute. It has been a wonderful getaway! I'll be sad when the free days are over on February 10th. Hmm...maybe I'll have to figure out a way to get a cheap student membership or something. Who knows? Maybe it's worth it? It satisfies a part of my need for traveling, beauty, history, and it's a place to go with friends too.
