And, frankly, we thought. . . why does everyone else get to have all the fun? So we decided to pick some of our favorite artworks, "act" them out, and see if our loyal readers could guess which pieces from the Art Institute's permanent collection we're mimicking. All of the pieces we chose are currently on view and can be found in the museum's online collection. Also, (hint #1!) this is the American edition.
And don't worry, we won't be quitting our day jobs any time soon. Leave your guesses in the comments!
