Art in Bloom

On Thursday, we attended Art in Bloom at the Milwaukee Art Museum. If you read me regularly, you probably know how much I admire Anselm Kiefer’s painting, “Midgard.” The arrangement inspired by that painting easily secured my “people’s choice” vote.

At the Art Institute of Chicago

The above are my images of detail in several favorite works. Click to enlarge.

Earlier this month, we visited the Art Institute of Chicago for the first time since November 2019. In addition to the pleasures of returning to the old friends in this, one of our favorite places in the greatest city in the world, this introvert enjoyed the non-existent crowds on that warm, sunny Saturday.
