Those of us who’ve been mourning the loss of the Terra Museum of American Art since it closed last October can continue to get our fix of Edward Hopper, Charles Demuth, and their contemporaries and forebears by checking out the expanded American Art galleries at the Art Institute of Chicago. Portions of the Terra collection have been on loan to the Art Institute since April and are being displayed along with the Art Institute’s own hefty holdings.
