Break out your jean shorts and your flower crowns. . . Lollapalooza starts today! Over the course of the weekend, more than 130 bands will grace the stages of the giant music festival, which is located just across the street from the Art Institute.
And for the fifth year in a row, we're bringing you our Lollapalooza challenge. Match these works from the Art Institute's collection with the band name from Lollapalooza's line-up that you think they represent. The first person to get all eight correct—in the blog comments—will be the winner of an Art Institute prize pack.
