ILLINOIS TURNS TO ITALY

Renaissance Florence moves to contemporary Chicago with the arrival of several Michelangelos this month. The sculptures and drawings illustrate the influential art patronage of the Medici family of Tuscany in the show THE MEDICI, MICHELANGELO AND THE ART OF LATE RENAISSANCE FLORENCE at The Art Institute of Chicago. The 200 rarely loaned works represent a roster of Renaissance men: Cellini, Giambologna, Vasari, and, of course, Michelangelo. Catch them November 9 through February 2. (312) 443-3624, www.artic.edu
