For you Chicago MG readers, or anyone planning on visiting Chicago, a visit to the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago is a must.  I recently made a visit and all I can say is WOW.  Not only does it house some of the most famous and recognized names and works in contemporary art, but The Terzo Piano designed structure is also a work of art in itself.  I  first visited at night for a dinner event touting the Cy Twombly exhibit (on display until October 11), and my second and most recent visit was on a crisp, clear beautiful day…a testament that this truly is a destination for all seasons and times of day or night.  If you get a chance, you must check it out!
