Gapers Block

This weekend sees the 2003 installment of Art Chicago, a massive convergence of the best from art galleries' collections from around the world. It's only a little more expensive than a visit to the Art Institute or MCA and you didn't really need to see Sunday on the Island of La Grande Jatte again anyway.
