    This is great for the Art Institute of Chicago. Congratulations on this gift. But I wonder what 50 million dollars would do for eliminating homelessness in Chicago? Or for prevention of gun violence. Or a myriad of other issues that affect people’s daily lives. Sustaining art and culture is vital for us as a society. I believe in and support local arts,artists, and musicians. Yet I am struck once again by this vast charitable gift given by the wealthy to support well-off charitable institutions.
