Fun Facts

The Art Institute of Chicago was built in 1893 for the World's Columbian Exposition. 

The bronze lions that flank the steps to the Art Institute have guarded the museum since 1894. The lion positioned north of the steps "on the prowl" and the lion to the south "in an attitude of defiance."
