On Labor Day, we decided we'd better
check out the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit.
It was the very last day the display would
be at the Art Institute.
On the way there, we ran into a protest
in support of the Chicago teachers. Folks everywhere
were wearing red shirts in support of the
Chicago Teachers' Union. The best sign I saw said:
IGNORANCE IS A
KNOWLEDGE IS THE
EDUCATION IS THE
That's perfect! You can't get much more spot on than that.
Even Miller's Pub was totally full for lunch
with supporters crowded in to take a well-deserved break.
We spent the majority of our Labor Day waiting in
various lines - the line at Miller's Pub, the line to get
into the Art Institute, and the really-really long line
to get into the special exhibit. But, even
after all that waiting we had a good time. It's fun
to see pop art up close and personal and full size.
I had no idea Roy Lichtenstein's career was so extensive.
The exhibit was much bigger than I thought it would be.
It was a primary color explosion!
