The stairs at the art institute were very nice. I've never seen writing on stairs, and along with that, the writings were lighted up, sort of looking like New York at night. They were saying random regular english words. There weren't any other languages written on the stairs. The stairs didn't have anything to do with any historic events. It was something that made the art institute alot more interesting. The historic art items and pictures were nice, but the stairs were real nice. Of course when I was about to go up those stairs I had no choice but to take a look because of how bright they were. They weren't so bright to make you blind, but bright enough to make you look at stairs, sounds weird but its true.
