We’ve all heard of a lending library, you go in, pick a book, give the librarian your library card and take it home to read, but what about an art lending library? A museum in Chicago is doing just that, they’re letting residents fill out an art library card and take home real, original works of art to hang in their home. And it’s free! It started just two weeks ago at the Jane Addams Hull House Museum at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Heather Rabke is here to tell us how it’s going.
