After attending an R&B concert with Dru Hill, Chico Debarge, Silk, Tevin Campbell and the iconic Brian McKnight at the Wintrust Arena we spent the weekend at 21c Museum Hotel. 21c Museum Hotel is a very nice hotel which has a full art museum inside; and the current exhibit there did not disappoint.

I actually missed that detail at first until Meeks pointed it out to me and thus turning what I thought was a fairly mundane exhibition into a very chilling experience.

So, we did the next best thing and went all the way to the US/Canadian border and looked over Lake St. Claire into our neighbors to the North. Actually, in this case considering where we were, Canad...[continue]
