Countdown to Chitwon 3: Art Institute of Chicago

Did you know the famed and venerable Art Institute of Chicago actually started as a FREE art school? That was before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed the main building and the Academy was thrown into debt. Many attempts to save the institution failed but it finally became a new organization named the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. This 8 x 10 print, along with all my other Chicago landmark prints, will be for sale in booth 229 at the upcoming Chicago Renegade Craft Fair Sept. 6 & 7.
