There was an interesting notice in the Chicago Tribune this last December 6. It was an ad asking the public to help recreate a photo of the Art Institute of Chicago originally taken in 1893. The museum does not want someone to make a custom canvas wall art piece but be part of the art itself.

The photo recreation is set to take place on the front steps of the museum located on Michigan Avenue in Chicago on December 8, 2018. As part of its 125th anniversary, the Art Institute of Chicago is asking patrons or anyone else who is interested, to sit on the steps outside the museum. Pose with hundreds of others and get your picture taken as part of the Art Institute’s tribute to its history.

The picture is a black-and-white photo showing a large crowd sitting on the steps of the Michigan Avenue Institute and spilling onto the street. Three people can be seen walking in front of the crowd. They are a bit blurry, but photographers feel they can recreate this same atmosphere.

The Art Institute’s building dates to the World’s Colombian Exposition of 1893. The fair committee worked together with the Art Institute board to construct the building. The building itself was used during the Colombian Exposition for international assemblies and meetings. Best custom canvas prints of this exposition can be found in the art institute’s museum, in case you are interested.

The photo is a part of the Art Institute’s community and Chicago history. Art officials want to recreate the photo to be displayed as an exciting part of the 125th-anniversary celebration. The best custom wall art of this photo will be shared on social media and become part of the museum’s archives.

After the celebration and the photo is re-released, it can be turned into custom canvas wall art and purchased as part of art used in displays.

Museum curators and the board are hoping that members and as well as the public will be interested enough to participate and be a part of history in the making. Kati Murphy, a spokesperson for the Institute, says, “Being inclusive and inviting everyone is part of who we are and part of our civic mission,” Murphy said.

Just starting to wear boxer briefs made of synthetic materials and I'm with them.
These are a great deal! They look good & feel comfortable. They also come with a protective case, a soft carry bag, & a cleaning cloth.
I bought a different type of front pocket wallet a while back. It worked great but everything fit between two hard sides with a very strong rubberr band holing it together. Pulling cards out when they are so tightly held has a tendency to scratch the strip on credit cards and the like. After that happens, your cards have a hard time being read by cc scanners.
With actual pockets for the cards to go in, this is a much better idea.
Very pretty and fits great. Just worried about the stones and how long they will stay put!
Compared to Costco brands, these fit with much more comfort at the top of the elastic. Of course, I have larger calves, and this is the reason Costco's socks are tight and leave a compression band...
I'm not spending money on oakley and Maui Jim or Costas any longer. These are just as nice and I can lose 4 pair and I would still be out less money than the oakleys. Thanks Amazon
Love this! Its perfect for small purses or just to slip into your pocket. It holds paper money without having to fold it, has a place for coins and comes in some beautiful colors. The fact that it is RFID blocking is a major plus.
Had a pair of these for years and lost them on a trip. Glad to have found them again here. These are what I call my gray day glasses when I don't have to deal with bright sun but still need shade. Love their style and clarity.
My son loves it ,
Very cute!
.This is a quality t-shirt. Thick material, very long, wide enough to be comfortable & not tight/choking. I bought large & am 5'8" 172" with an apple shaped body
My daughter loves these. She is larger than normal three year old, but they fit her great. The colors are bright, the material is soft. I like that one pair is short sleeve and the other is long sleeve. Also nice to be able to mix and match between the tops and the bottoms.
Material is light and comfortable.
This Jacket is very comfy and well made. It's not very thick but still insulates decent. I'm 5'9" 140lbs and the small fits me almost perfect. A little short on the sleeves but my arm length is longer compared to the average person my size. The material repels water well and hair/fur doesn't get stuck in it so it's great if you have pets too.
Just what it looks like
Excellent quality.
I bought this wallet for my boyfriend for our anniversary and he loved it! I wanted a wallet that had vegan leather and looked high end. Definitely not disappointed. It's a little wider than he wanted but he still likes the extra flap for his ID and has more space for his cards.
nice socks good fix boyfriend wears to for
My order was Amazon and these glasses are made in Italy. Someone typed that the knockoffs are made somewhere else. The quality is very good and the size of the glasses are a good fit for my face and head size. If I have one complaint, it's that the glasses seem to sit a little low on my face. I feel like the wire across the top is almost in my line of sight. I adjusted the nose pieces downward and it helped. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase.
Im a woman, 59 and 145 lbs and I order the medium for a perfect fit. A large if I wanted it to be more oversized. I own one in black and one in green and plan on buying more! So cheap and comfy
Usually buy Dockers but took a chance on these Amazon Essentials. Was very pleased with the quality and fit and price was good.
Replaced a clip that was wearing out, PERFECT
I'm a fan... Good for a guy with few cards, and you can tell it's quality from the first touch.
Love it
The little rubber things that hold the glasses are great, and the product is a high quality one. I'm used to the "sock" type glass holders as they are a little more comfortable behind the ears than these are, but I will get used to them and I like the price and quality of these.
Good socks but the toes seem to wear thin after a few months.
