FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
museums William Eggleston: Democratic Camera, Photographs, and Video, 1961-2008
Saturated scenes, found bits of rusted-out detritus, anxious peeks at an evolving society: With a knack for capturing both color and decisive moments, Eggleston set the tone for generations of American photographers. Taking a page from Eggleston’s democratic playbook, the Art Institute waives admission for the entire month of February.
GO: Feb 27–May 23. Art Institute of Chicago, 111 S Michigan. artinstituteofchicago.org
