This is my first visit to Chicago since I moved last spring and I am here for a special occasion. Tonight is the opening of the Deering Family Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art, Arms, and Armor at the Art Institute of Chicago. This project has been years in the making and required the careful attention of a great many people, a number of whom I had the privilege of thanking in person this evening. Congratulations to the entire AIC team on the accomplishment of this staggering new addition. "Saints and Heroes" opens to the public on March 18 - please come check it out.

From Saints and Heroes at the Art Institute: jousting, exorcisms, original sin, and even an appearance from St. Lucy. Plus, some very disapproving apostles.

My first choice of birthday weekend activities got rained out, so we went to see Saints and Heroes at @artinstitutechi instead! Brought back some great memories of Spain and that one amazing/ridiculous medieval literature class I took in college. #artinstituteofchicago #saintsandheroes

Up close it's amazing how this very old wood has survived, aged, and worn very nicely. Still seamlessly blending with the art work. #artinstituteofchicago #artic #saintsandheroes #chicago #chicagoart #chicagomuseum #chicagoartscene

The second of a photographic triptych I am trying to put together here from the shots I took at the #artinstituteofchicago.
