This week I went to the Krannert Art Museum to see the exhibition “Between the buildings: Art from Chicago, 1930s- 1980s”, it’s a very interesting exhibition because there are all kinds forms of art, including paintings, photographs, and sculptures, from lots of artists. All of those various artworks from various artists have one thing in common; those artworks were created and crafted by an artist to express different themes and aspects of the windy city Chicago.
I’ve been to Chicago plenty of times, with my friends or families. Tall buildings and large crowds of people left me with the same impression every single time I visited, busy and bustling. Yet the exhibition showed me another side of Chicago, a side of mystery, abstract, and strange.
