Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections is a show that shouldn't be missed. It features 63 artworks from the early Christian and Byzantine eras at the Art Institute of Chicago. The show includes manuscripts, luxury glass, silver, liturgical textiles, painted icons, shimmering mosaics, architectural fragments, and personal adornments from the fascinating period of time when Greece was a part of the Byzantine Empire. The exhibit, which was originally shown at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, will also be the debut of the 14th-century Icon of Saint Prokopios.
