The Art Institute's Casas Grandes ceramic exhibit is worth checking out (you can stop in free tonight and tomorrow after work) before it closes Sunday. Native American ceramic objects between a few hundred and over a thousand years old are displayed and what's striking (aside from their amazingly good condition) is how modern they are: you wouldn't be surprised to see some of these designs at a local arts and crafts fair.
