Karen, Anne and I will be spending our day downtown hopping from one photography exhibit to another. Why see one exhibit when you can see five, I always say. (Especially when half the exhibits close tomorrow.)
After a breakfast at home of eggs benedict, made with homemade hollandaise sauce and country ham imported from Kentucky (thanks Jan!), we’ll hop on the el and immerse ourselves in some fine photography.
On the agenda today:
- Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Art and Photography of Paris at the Art Institute
- Michael Wolf: The Transparent City at the Museum of Contemporary Photography
- Made in Chicago: Photographs from the Bank of America LaSalle Collection at the Chicago Cultural Center
- Chicago Landmarks Before the Lens also at the Cultural Center (Also hoping to see the newly restored Tiffany dome.)
- Wayne F. Miller: Photographs 1942-1957 at Stephen Daiter Gallery
To top it all off, it won’t cost us a thing beyond our El fare. Everything is free!
