Due to decreasing attendance and bad investments, the Art Institute is thinking of increasing ticket prices to $12, in an attempt to make up a $150 million loss in assets and to fund a $280 million expansion project. If approved, the ticket hike would go into effect this July. (But on the bright side, Tuesdays will still be free.)
