Your Armory Show Headline of the Day: from the Chicago Tribune, Apr. 1, 1913. After closing in New York, the Armory Show traveled to the Art Institute of Chicago. Despite (or maybe because of) an investigation by the Illinois Vice Commission on charges of immorality, attendance in Chicago was just as brisk as in New York.
