The Chicago Design Museum


A large pop-up art space titled the Chicago Design Museum will be open all this month.  Tonight Monday will be an opening reception featuring 5 shows within their space in Humboldt Park. 

One the shows there I'm looking forward to is Fresh Produced: Exploring the Craft of Handpainted Signage, which will focus on reinterpretations of the kind of large scale handpainted paper signs you see in the windows of grocery stores.  More info on all five shows is posted here.  The space will also feature a store called Ignorance & Ambition.

As an art student researching the work of the Impressionists, I have big help from this site called wahooart.com. It's like a good art library, where, convenient for me, works of artists are divided into art movements in history. Some of the works I had never seen before.
As the canvas prints are affordable, I ordered online a little size canvas print of my favorite,
