  • A trip through expanded reality with Magritte

    A trip through expanded reality with Magritte
    Getting through the day requires a certain amount of repression. There is order in the ordinary: a pipe is a thing to be packed with tobacco and smoked, the word "sky" refers to the blue space up above, a slice of ham will lie still and silent until it is...
  • Task force to study transit options to Museum Campus

    Task force to study transit options to Museum Campus
    At least once a month, Patrick Carlson takes the Blue Line to the Loop and hops on a CTA bus to Museum Campus, home to the Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum. Sometimes he rides his bike from his Logan Square home to the Lakefront...

    Contemplating the infinite at Adler Planetarium
    Go to Adler Planetarium if you're feeling big in your britches, a little prideful about our species' role in things. In Chicago's lakefront astronomy museum, there's no escaping what a little grain of sand on an enormous beach we are. Video...
  • South Side creates its own Museum Campus

    South Side creates its own Museum Campus
    The idea sat roughly in the middle of the city's Cultural Plan 2012, a bullet point among scores of bullet points: "Development of a 'Museum Campus South' that connects major institutions on the South Side." Now it's being put into action. At a news...
  • Alsace: Europe's cultural hybrid

    Alsace: Europe's cultural hybrid

  • Vibrant Vienna

    Vienna ranks right at the top of my list of elegant European cities. Once the capital of the mighty Habsburg Empire, this imperial city has an enduring grandeur and an easy livability that I admire. From a sightseeing point of view, Vienna is the sum...
  • What's New in Germany, Hungary, and Austria for 2013

    Three countries with a rich heritage -- Germany, Hungary, and Austria -- each have a constantly evolving sightseeing scene. Here's the latest: Getting into the Reichstag, Berlin's parliament building (with its striking 155-foot-tall glass cupola), has...
  • European art beyond museum walls

    Europeans love to dress up the settings of everyday life, from their piazzas to their back lanes -- and they've been doing it for centuries. Climbing the Acropolis, communing with the druids at Stonehenge, strolling the Croatian shore in the shadow of...
  • A blitz tour of Madrid

    I'm standing on a tiny balcony overlooking the Times Square of all of Spain, Madrid's Puerta del Sol. Within a 10-minute walk I can visit Madrid's Royal Palace, one of the greatest palaces in Europe; Plaza Mayor, the ultimate town square; or the Prado...
  • Beyond Barcelona

    It's hard to top Barcelona, Spain's most cosmopolitan and fun city. I love the place, but I'm not alone. Every year, 10 million visitors swoop into town, rambling the Ramblas, touring hidden corners of the Old City, and marveling at playful Modernista...
  • Spain's Toledo: A Living monument

    On my last visit to Toledo, it seemed holier than ever: Dark El Greco clouds threatened overhead, stark against bright, clear horizons. Hail pelted the masses of people clogging the streets as they awaited the Good Friday procession. A look back at my...
