Hey, all you art-loving crimestoppers! The Art Institute of Chicago is stepping 2K11 off on the right foot by waiving admission fees for the month of January.

Starting today and running through Feb, 4, admission is free from the following times : 10:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Wednesday, and 10:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday. We're just imagining the lunchtime traffic now.
