I wonder what happened?
Was it really a meteor that landed?
With all this war and hate;
Will we, someday, meet the same fate?

fortpulaskinps #MuseumMonday: James Rifled Bolt (Fort Pulaski Museum Collection). Much like the perfect spiral leaving the tips of a quarterback’s fingers, the invention of rifled artillery at the start of the Civil War gave new, football-shaped projectiles just enough spin to be incredibly accurate at great distances. An offensive line of these cannon destroyed the solid brick defenses of Fort Pulaski in less than 30 hours – the first time they had ever been used against a masonry fortification. (am and kb)

mexic_arte Bashful dollops of wasabi, a bowl of cheering Fruit Loops, wide-eyed and curious cats—these are a few of the subjects that artist Briar Bonifacio portrays in his artwork. Colorful, cartoon-like, and somewhat whimsical, Bonifacio’s work has been shown all over the country, and, most recently, one of his serigraphs is currently on exhibit in Obra Gráfica: Selections from the Mexic-Arte Museum Print Collection. Additionally, his murals can be seen at various sites around Austin that incorporate his trademark style bringing a bit of color to the buildings he uses as his canvas. He recently completed painting a mural on the 5th Street-facing wall of the museum. Come to Mexic-Arte Museum to check out the mural and exhibit.

driehausmuseum Happy #LunarNewYear! Since it is the #YearoftheMonkey we couldn't help but share this favorite image of a monkey on a bronze vessel from the 1893 World's Fair that resides on the 2nd floor of the mansion. The red is actually the glow of the sunlight coming through the stained glass. We wish you all a fruitful and happy new year! #museum #museummonday #monkey #igerschicago #mychicagopix #igers #architecture #chiarchitecture #art #worldsfair 4h

suzystimelesstreasures It was tough, but here’s my favorite costume at The Driehaus Museum’s “Dressing Downton” exhibit enhanced by the stunning paste emerald necklace by Andrew Prince Jewellery. This dress is worn by Martha Levinson, Cora’s mother, in season 3 during the indoor picnic scene. It is burnout, or devour, silk velvet in layers embellished with black bugle beads with an Art Deco pattern in the top layer according to the comprehensive booklet you receive when you do the tour. I can see myself wearing this gorgeous green dress! Set in the Driehaus Mansion’s Gilded Age rooms, you can easily imagine yourself stepping back in time to Downton Abbey. I can’t wait to visit again! 5h

driehausmuseum Tomorrow is the big day!! The day that "Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times" opens to the public. It's amazing to think we announced this back in June 2015, tickets on sale in October and finally it's just one sleep away. To those who have attended one (or some of you two or three!!) of our events this week to preview the exhibition and tea room thank you for your enthusiasm and feedback. #DriehausDownton #dressingdownton #DowntonAbbey #downton #exhibit #exhibition #pbs #television #museum #museummonday #Chicago #chievents #chiarchitecture #architecture #igers #igerschicago #mychicagopix #actor #actress 7h
