A day in the city

June 17, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

A day in the city running errands and sightseeing. CT and CM visited the Gold Coast Art Fair after Zumba. I wandered over to the Art Institute to see the new Ivan Albright show... I can't say I like his work much (I'm not sure anyone can actually 'like' his paintings) but he was a great artist. Apparently a meticulous one as well. He made a complete drawing on the canvas before beginning to paint in a patchwork fashion. In this image you can see the charcoal drawing along with the painted sections...

Later I ran across the beginning of the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade forming up on Columbus. Lots of flags and interesting cars. Also a large number of flag decked jeeps. Is that a thing?
