art, tulips and chicago

Posted on April 12, 2012 by Debbie Kuhn | 0 Comments

I just returned from another wonderful visit to Chicago…absolutely love that city. I went to see Art Chicago, hang out with friends and take in the city. It was “Tulip Days on the Magnificent Mile” and may I just say the tulips could not have been more stunning and beautiful.  

The highlight of Art Chicago for me, hands down, was the tour of Marilyn and Larry Fields art collection. Their contemporary art collection was beyond spectacular. They actually have a “private” gallery on one side of their apartment that also serves as guest quarters with its own kitchenette and the coolest resin bathroom. I loved viewing the art but quickly became captured by the design features of the home which provided a wonderful back drop for their art collection as well as the views of the city and lake. The materials, textures, shapes and clean lines were an absolute feast for the eyes at every turn. I was positively blown away by my entire experience at their home.
Then there was the three-course dessert tasting at TRU. If you are into dessert, I cannot recommend enough, treating yourself to this experience during your next visit to Chicago. It is fine dining with how bad could that be? I could go on and on about this decadent experience but will not bore you with the details other than to say…GO, GO, GO! I promise all of you dessert lovers out there, it is most memorable, divinely delicious and an absolute treat for your taste buds.
