#16: Renew my membership at the Art Institute - COMPLETE

The Art Institute of Chicago is a really special place to me. Anytime I feel frustrated, or depleted and drained, I know that I can go there and feel renewed. Art does that for me. It reminds me of the tenacity of the human spirit, and the longevity of beauty.

The museum also has one of the best post-work bars for members - in my opinion - in the city. Open only on Thursdays, when the museum has extended hours, it's quiet, with beautiful views of their patio garden (which is open during the summer months), and they have a small, but lovely wine list.

So I knew that renewing my membership to this special place was something that needed to be included on my list of 40 things. And that goal was completed today!
