OLLI had their first official trip of the Fall 2014 season with a charter coach to the Art Institute of Chicago.
Jean Gronewold, a painter, teacher and frequent OLLI instructor joined us for the day. She gave us a preview of what to look for in the special exhibit "Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926 - 1938" and some insight into this decidedly different artist.
OLLI members began their day at the museum with a keynote lecture where they learned even more about the feature exhibit on Magritte.
They spent the rest of the day on their own enjoying informal gallery talks, self-guided audio tours, as well as artist demonstrations and other mini-lectures.
It was an awesome day, admiring the collection of the second largest art museum in the the United States. We would like to thank Jean Gronewold for joining us and sharing her expertise.
