The rainy days are nigh, but don’t let that damper your spring disposition. One place to take refuge is the Art Institute of Chicago. At the museum, there are always ongoing exhibits that will force open your eyes to the different manners of telling a story. From March 1st to June 1st, the Dayanita Singh exhibit is open to the public. At first she started her career as a photojournalist, but now she’s collects photographic narratives of others and crafts them into books.

Another exhibit, which is currently happening at the Art Institute of Chicago, is a showing of the work of Christopher Wool, and his exhibit ends on May 11th.  Wool is considered to be a pillar in abstract art for his generation.  Throughout his career, he has used different styles in order to reflect his changing artistic techniques and ideals.

Take some time to go downtown and explore the art museum and the works of Christopher Wool and Dayanita Singh. Don’t let the rainy days stop you from enjoying the stories and various ways of artistic expression that are thriving around you.
