G is for Gorey - C is for Chicago
Pipkin made another fun discovery when he crossed the street. While he was looking up at the tower, he noticed this flag:
Elephant House. But what many forget, is that Gorey grew up and went to art school in Chicago. Visiting an Edward Gorey exhibit in his hometown just makes sense.
Loyola University Museum of Art is free on Tuesdays. Pipkin was happy to be so lucky.
Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey, which Pipkin had already seen a couple years ago when the exhibit was in Portland, ME. He was happy to see the exhibit again, along with Thomas Michalak's collection of Gorey's letters and illustrations for other authors and magazines. Photography wasn't allowed inside the gallery, but the exhibit runs until June 15 2014, so if you're in Chicago, you can still see it!
