Welcome to Chicago, PAD Members! When asked by visitors to my beloved city what to go see, I usually betray my art historical inclinations and suggest something related to architecture. Chicago is, after all, an architecture city par excellence, and with so much Gang, Goldberg, Mies, Sullivan, et al. to choose from, art sometimes seems an afterthought. For those of you willing to contend with our lovely winter weather and leave the confines of the conference hotel, however, there are plenty of public artworks and projects worth the effort.
