After a court hearing Friday, I stopped by the Art Institute of Chicago, which is just a couple blocks from the federal courthouse. In the Modern Wing, there’s a wonderful space on the second floor—a small room you enter through a glass door. Once inside, these paintings—each has a wall to itself—surround you.
