Art Institute of Chicago

We took a "Land of Lincoln" vaction in June. I'm going to post a few of my favorite photos from the trip. We spent most of our time in Chicago, but we also visited our favorite Abraham Lincoln sites around Springfield. We stopped at the new Lincoln Presidential Museum. (More on that in later posts.)

The above photo is of a stairway in the Art Institute of Chicago. The Art Institute was a very nice place to spend a few hours on a hot Tuesday morning/afternoon. I have to admit, however, that while this place has some cool stuff, I still prefer the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
