McDANIEL Associated Press Writer CHICAGO (AP) — "Good luck, Detectives!" And with that, they're off—not looking for the 10 most wanted criminals, but for works of art. It's all part of a game called "I Spy," designed to introduce children to art and aesthetics at the Art Institute of Chicago. The game is one of the activities of the Art Institute's Junior Museum, a section set aside for youngsters within the main museum. Lois Raasch, supervisor of children's education, says the Junior Museum's purpose is "to give an introduction to looking." "We try to stress aesthetics as opposed to ait history," Miss Raasch said. The facilities for children are as elaborate and well planned on a small scale as the Art Institute's galleries and other facilities for everyone. Tree trunks rise up through benches in the court around which tli^ little museum is built. In the center is a fountain built around a sculpture of animals, and there is a gift counter with games and toys and art books for children. A picnic room is decorated with antique wooden carousel horses at one enfl, and the walls feature changing exhibits of children's art from foreign countries as well as the United States. A library with low shelves has reading pits with a table in the center. The children sit around the carpeted edge to read. Children playing the "I Spy" game sit in a small auditorium to hear a tape and see slides to give them hints. The auditorium also serves for movies and lectures. In the main gallery for children, there is a revolving world globe, six feet in diameter, which features miniature photographs of the featured art works pinned on the countries where they originated.
