I am a nerd and so I love any opportunity that will keep me cultured and learning about something new. Last weekend I went to the Art Institute of Chicago Museum! I know my geeky sisters will believe me when I say it was fun, collaborative and engaging. But others of you may have some doubts about it, but I promise you it was truly the bomb.com! Although I am interested in museums the main reason why it was so fun was because I participated in the Museum Hack Un-Highlights Tours. The things that made this tour different from an average tour is that it was complete with, Mark, our tour guide with a cool swag and booming personality, teambuilding activities and unique (usually untold) stories about different art pieces and artists. This tour was definitely not an average one. In just 2 hours I was able to go on a hunt for my soulmate, write a postcard, take selfies and eat chocolate!
The thing that I appreciated most about Museum Hack is that it forced me to find an art piece that really touched me. One piece that made me take a bold look at myself was Truth. In 1898 Daniel Chester French sculpted Truth along with 5 other pieces representing Bounty, Courage, Integrity, Prudence and Wisdom. Truth is holding a mirror and looking at her partially nude body. She is a representation of women taking a deep look at their natural selves. There was a time in my life when I hated taking a deep look at myself physically and mentally. Truth is my reminder to boldly look at myself and appreciate me on the inside and the outside!
I recommend Museum Hack for anyone, even if you’re not into tours. Trust me you will leave with a different view. Museum Hack can even be a great date night idea! To learn more visit www.museumhack.com
