raiosunshine Whenever I am stressed or need to escape for a bit, I will retreat to the World War Memorial. There's nothing quite like sitting on the balcony of the Memorial at sunset. It's peaceful. Sometimes I just sit there and do nothing, and it's really relaxing. #WHPmyoasis 11min

raiosunshine The lesser known northern dome of the @chiculturcenter. 40-feet wide and too big to square, the northern dome was designed by Healy & Millet. According to the @chiculturcenter's website, the dome features 50,000+ pieces of glass. Such a beautiful piece of architecture + art. #chiarchitecture 5d

raiosunshine It just so happened I had two awesome photos of the @chiculturcenter hanging out on my camera roll, just in time for the @chiarchitecture Instagram contest of this Chicago landmark. I had fun sharing the inside of this space with @dmarieolsen and @ljbnyc1 for the first time. Interior photo forthcoming... 5d

raiosunshine The Indiana State Fair is, hands down, my favorite part of summer. I loved spending it with @igersindy during #circlecitysesh28. Last year, @dmarieolsen somehow got me on the ferris wheel, and this year seven of us piled onto the GIANT wheel. I'll never forget either of memorable experiences. #igersindystatefair 6d

raiosunshine I've never posted a photo of the iconic @indystatefair Midway Arch. Besides #thatindycarousel, it's the most iconic feature at the fair. I had a wonderful time meeting new people last night at #circlecitysesh28! 1w

raiosunshine Only a handful of Chicago images left as I continue to purge my Camera Roll... This building (and the Flamingo) are wildly photogenic, in my opinion! #chitecture 2w

raiosunshine I want to promise this is my last photo of the Flamingo but... I don't know know if that's a promise I can keep. The art historian in me loves Caulder's work. #igerschicago 3w
  •   hollyin1503 I love Calder. There was a Calder exhibit at the Children's Museum years ago that I volunteered as a docent for. It really upped my appreciation for Calder. 3w
  •   linda_ralston Will you be attending ArtPrize in Grand Rapids? Have you seen his LA Grand Vitesse in GR? 3w
  •   raiosunshine @_mbradm_ Yes! Please do. I'd love to see it 3w
  •   raiosunshine @johnny.flowers I take that as approval for more Caulder images 3w
  •   raiosunshine @jenniferhowell Yes they do!! 3w
  •   raiosunshine @hollyin1503 Oh, I am sad I missed that. I bet it was wonderful! 3w
  •   raiosunshine @linda_ralston I have seen the Caulder in Grand Rapids -- I saw it earlier this year actually! Not planning to go to ArtPrize at this point, my weekends are booked solid for the next two months! 😕 3w

raiosunshine Happy Saturday, everyone! Hope you are out exploring somewhere new. Can you believe when we went to the #igc_globalmeet it was my first time in Daley Plaza (for real). So much lovely Modern architecture. #igerschicago 3w

raiosunshine For the historic ceiling lovers out there, this detail was repeated a dozen or so times on the ceiling in the GAR section of the Cultural Center. 3w

raiosunshine I would love to get to the top of the Tribune Tower, which is photobombing this photo of the Wrigley Building. As an architectural historian, the Tribune Tower competition had such a profound influence on design. Most notably because of the second place design by one of my architectural heroes -- Eliel Saarinen. Any of you Chicago folks ever been to the top of the Tribune? I can imagine seeing the buttresses up close is awesome! #chitecture 3w

raiosunshine I don't think you can ever adequately photograph this space but here's my attempt. It is literally jaw dropping. 4w
