Definitely our Museum of Contemporary Art here is phenomenal. The Art Institute goes without saying. It’s an amazing collection. There are also some smaller museums that I really like. At Loyola University downtown, they actually have a collection of art that’s connected with theology sort of that focus; but it’s a really incredible, interesting collection of stuff. It’s all about illumination.
There’s the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen that’s really interesting, featuring modern Mexican artists. I think they’re often marginalized in more conventional settings. And then for taxidermy, the Field Museum is unparalleled because people aren’t killing and stuffing animals anymore, and it’s got a ton of that stuff. So it’s really cool to look at.
