Art Institute, Chicago, IL
MArch 9, 2013
I really loved visiting the Art Institute, for my second time, on the recent Midwest trip. I saw lots of neat pieces including this beautiful Rauschenberg Combine - Short Circuit (Combine Painting), 1955. I have always liked his work, and collages/combines in general, but this one had a unique charm. Perhaps because it invites the viewer to look closer?Source: rinfocus.wordpress.com
My good friend, Jen, sent each member of our book club a handmade bookmark. Mine arrived last night and I adore it. Here it is marking my place in The Wizard of Oz.
Jen’s etsy store is here.

Art in Transit - Literary Journeys by Owen Smith
The series “Literary Journeys” depicts BART riders immersed in books by Dashiell Hammett, Jack London and Amy Tan, with scenes from the books coming to life in their imaginations. “I love the idea that there could be something interesting and different to look at while you are waiting for a train,” Smith says.
