Encouraged by the completion of the new Modern Wing, the Art Institute President wants to make free admission possible.
At about 8:43 a.m., police responded to a disturbance call of a man who was on top of a sculptural fountain next to the Art Institute at 230 S. Columbus Drive, reports the Southtown Star.
When police arrived to the scene, the AI student conjured up his best Spider-Man moves and made an 8-foot leap down from the fountain to the roof of a low-rise building that is part of the Institute.
Instead of facing criminal charges, the student will undergo a psychological evaluation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, said Officer John Mirabelli.
Guess he's just crazy about art.
