    Wide and different collections but without a guide was very confusing, ending up with a fast walk around.Security staff was very very rude at the moment of closing while I was reading the last panel.

    Check out the new Modern wing, designed by Renzo Piano. The gallery space is as impressive as the artwork.

    Ferris Bueller fan? Anyone? Anyone? 🎨😄 Check out a mini-tour of 6 works from the movie. 🎬🎥 This handy guide is available at the Michigan Ave entrance.

    Don't wander too close to a Charles Ray sculpture! You'll set off a sensor alarm! At least, photography is allowed. 📷🎨😳

    Member's card is no longer enough to breeze through. They're also checking IDs. Slows the line down considerably. 😁🎨
