Saturday turned out to be a bit of an "art-fest" After the Kara Walker exhibit we strolled through the permanent exhibit at The Modern and then walked next door to The Kimbell and saw The Impressionists Exhibit in town from the Art Institute of Chicago. I'm not sure I've ever seen so much art in a single day, much less two back-to-back exhibits that were more opposite in theme, style etc... It was pretty wild.
All that art viewing left very little time for a proper grown-up meal, so we ended up at one of our favorite (but highly kid-friendly) Mexican restaurants... Rest assured, the thrill of having some (rare) uninterrupted adult conversation outweighed any number of pinatas strung from the ceiling gently mocking us during our leisurely lunch.
Highlights (both high-brow and shallow):
- A Luke + Owen Wilson sighting at The Modern
- Getting to visit my two of my all-time favorite paintings at the Kimbell (by Mondrian and de Goya respectively...)
