Fear No Art is the unofficial motto of this great museum just one block off Michigan Avenue. The high ceilings, huge windows and open spaces are a great contrast to typically stuffy traditional museums. But nothing prepares you for truly the most original, ground-breaking, and yes, sometimes disturbing artwork in the country. The museum hosts a special reception the first Friday of each month from 6-10pm. For $14 ($7 for members), there's a great buffett by Puck's, cash bar and access to all the exhibits, including the great gift shop. The Sunday brunch at Puck's overlooks Lake Michigan and Northwestern's tennis courts. Lovely!
