by drawings. That way I could take an intense look at every inch of the sculpture. And after spending about an hour or so, I am sure that I will have

The Art Institute of Chicago is a great place to study Art, especially if you are an Art Lover and work or live
around Chicago Downtown. The good part of it is - Tuesdays are free days and if you work in Chicago downtown, it is a perfect day to walk down and take
a visit. The best part of it is - you will get a chance to meet several Artists studying/working very seriously on the floors of the Museum. What else
an Artist needs to be inspired than a perfect environment like this?
Hey, if you are an Artist and happen to visit this art museum, don't forget to take your sketch book and a pencil/pen with you. I am sure you would be inspired with several master pieces and you
would regret if you walk in with empty hands.
