The Art Institute of Chicago’s Warhol exhibit came to a close last week. Walking away from the retrospective, with its massive painted silkscreen works and comprehensive showing, one relishes in the pleasant paradox of the extraordinary yet typical workings of the museum. How in the world do they get a nearly 15-foot high “Mao” piece installed? Who handles these priceless works? It turns out, it could be somebody like you. The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is offering training in art preparation and handling with its RE-TOOL 21 initiative.
