Chicago is a mecca for architecture, baseball, deep dish pizza, and Lalapalooza, and the city’s renowned museum is equally impressive. Founded in 1879, The Art Institute of Chicago holds more than 300,000 pieces that range from ancient art to contemporary works. Additionally, the museum garners tremendous special exhibitions that vary in period and genre thereby offering something for everyone. Currently special exhibitions include the beautiful paintings of masterful 19th century painter John Singer Sargent and the sterling pieces (double entendre intended) of George Jensen. If in Chicago, make time for this jewel in Chicago’s crown.  http://www.artic.edu
