How many art works are in the Art Institute of Chicago?
The Art Institute actually owns more than 300,000 works, although only about 20,000 are on display at any one time. The Institute owns the largest and best collection of Impressionist art in the Western Hemisphere thanks to Mrs. Potter Palmer and her dear friend and advisor, Mary Cassat. They also have an extensive archive and great collections of Asian and Chinese art, among others. Check out the website at http://www.artic.edu/aic/ and if you are anywhere near Chicago, you owe it to yourself to visit. A great book is The Essential Guide to the Art Institute.

Thanks for the feedback!
yes in the late 60's
Nine blocks due east on Adams St. If you wish to take public transportation, walk one block north from the Canal Street exit of Union Station to Monroe Street and take the num…ber 14 (Jeffrey Express) bus to Wabash Avenue. Get off and walk one more block east to Michigan Avenue and you will be there. The best way back by bus is to go across the street from the Art Institute and take the number 151 (Sheridan) bus. It will let you off across the street from the main Canal Street entrance to Union Station. The cost is $2.25 per person per ride with $1 off for 7 to 11 year olds. Children with full fare riding adult are free. Union Station (Canal St.) is located 3/4 mile west on Jackson Blvd. from the Art Institute of Chicago (Michigan Ave.).
No its not. It's run by a bunch of washed up, artsy teachers who grade you according to how THEY would do something. For instance, Portfolio defense (which follows Portfolio, …the final class)...if you use the color red - and use it effectively, might I add - a particular teacher who doesn't like the color red may say something ridiculous like "That red bothers me, blue would look so much better!" Then they will give you this long spill about the "real world," deadlines, and how you can't afford to make any mistakes. Some people were even forced to repeat Portfolio class over knit-picks like this. AIA's curriculum is quite essentric, with hardly nothing substantive or concrete. But what else would you expect from an art school? The best and most respectable classes were Entrepreneurship and Art Business Practice, which had hardly anything to do with art itself. I think if the school had more classes like this, then there would be a higher percentage rate for post-graduation employment (more on this later). The cost of the education is expensive too. Try anywhere from 55K - 65k. It was actually 55K when I was there. I've heard that these days, its somewhere around 75K and (wait for it.........wait for it........) 100K. But of course, that's just heresay. No one I went to school with had a 100K school bill. But I can confirm this...on the day of the Portfolio show (the final class meeting where graduates showcase their work), the career services lady tried to get me to sign a waiver stating that I agreed to accept a job that paid 20K annually, as long as it was in my field. I declined, of course. You might as well flip burgers if you're going to go out like that. Now, the most important part...post graduation employment. I'll just cut to the chase and say that it's very VERY hard to land a job in your field (which adds insult to the injury of having to accept a 20K annual salary). For awhile, I wondered if listing "The Art Institute of Atlanta" on your resume was a sure way NOT to get a job. I really did...because my class was full of talented, forward-thinking, and hardworking individuals, but none of them could find work! I wonder if this is the reason they have a BBB score of C-. I'll end this commentary by revealing that I received an email from the Art Institutes a few weeks ago, about Washington's new gainful employment law. To make a long story short, federal student aid may stop being granted for schools like AIA, because the odds of finding a job are slim to none. In the email, they were asking the Alumni to stand with them because "at one time, we were young, aspiring artists passionate about learning our crafts." Unfortunately though, its all about securing a job...and AIA doesn't seem to be the institute for that. So I will not be standing with them. I hope this serves as an honest review of the AIA school. I harbor no ill-feelings toward them, but desire to share "my truth" with those who are considering the school.
The Art Institute of Houston - like all of the other over 45 Art Institute colleges across the USA 0 has no sports teams or athletic programs. Therefore, they have no fight so…ngs.

There isn't one. CalArts doesn't participate in any of the sporting matches against other schools and usually doesn't compete often as a school in competitions (Although lots …of individuals do compete with their own personal or school work stuff for contests and such).
A 2.5 is required, but in some cases they accept as low as a 2.0
Michelangelo had 31 works of art, one of which was the Sistine Chapel.
According to The Metropolitan Museum of Art's official website they have more than two million permanent works of art.
The GPA for general admissions is typically a 2.0 for college transfer students. Colleges and universities view those graduating from high school as a whole individual and do …not look at the individual as just the parts. In other words, they will consider the SAT, rigor of the high school program, essay, volunteer work and other extra curricula activities. While they do look at high school GPA, it is more important to understand the high school and the grading system used.
From what I can find they don't have one. I am doing a report and have been searching for a while. Sorry if my answer is wrong. Here is their website http://www.artinstitutes.…edu/dallas/ .
How many works of art did Michelangelo sign? According to Vasari and other early biographers, while Michelangelo was an up-and-coming young sculptor in Rome he overheard …some people discussing his new Pietà in St. Peter's Basilica and attributing it to another artist. Michelangelo was irritated that the praise for all of his hard work was wrongly going to someone else, so he returned at night and carved the words "Michelangelo Buonoratti, Florentine, made this" in a prominent place on the sash across Mary's chest. He never again signed any of his work. So to answer your question: 1.
it is located on 111.michigan avenue
The art institute says that is classified information which i think is bull crap because they can't even give you a fricking statistic even IF YOU'RE DOING A SCHOOL PROJECT!!!…!!!!!!!!!!
