ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO Founded in 1879, the Art Institute is one of the oldest art museums in the United States. It houses the largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art outside the Louvre among its more than 300 thousand pieces of art. Works span thousands of centuries, from Etruscan pottery and Ancient Greek reliefs to Pablo Picasso's The Guitarist and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks. The Art Institute's Modern Wing is home to Terzo Piano, led by Chef Tony Mantuano, During the summer months, patrons clamor to be seated on the Bluhm Family Terrace, dining among rotating art installations and sculpture, and overlooking spectacular Millennium Park.
