On Earth, September 2013 is almost over. (On the other planets in our solar system, this month probably has another name.) Some main, art exhibits, which are at Chicago’s museums, are ending. However, other, main, art exhibits will be on display until 2014.
All of Chicago’s museums have objects which qualify as art. This art can be painted, Greek urns in the Field Museum, Rembrandt paintings in the Art Institute, photographs of distant galaxies in the Adler Planetarium, African sculptures in the DuSable Museum, a human-headed sphinx in the Oriental Institute Museum and 19th century photographs depicting early Chicago that are in the Chicago History Museum. Visiting these museums in-person allows visitors to see the objets d’art from different perspectives.
However, in this modern era of fast foods with high, fat content; people who would rather ride than walk; motorized golf carts, remote controls for televisions, etc., people (especially Americans) are becoming lazier. Such people, who appreciate art, can still appreciate art if they have computers, and if they know how to access the World Wide Web. Well-toned and vigorous individuals can save money and air fare by appreciating art in other, countries’ museums (like the British Museum), by using the Internet.
The following is a list of 10, Chicago museums. Although you can certainly travel to these museums via private transportation, you can also go there using public transportation. Chicago has an excellent, public transportation system that includes buses and commuter trains.
