Interactive art exhibit

The Art Institute of Chicago recently unveiled a new exhibit, titled 'Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941–1945,' focusing on the aftermath of German invasion of the Soviet Union. It looks incredibly interesting, especially considering the current political climate and detail in the artists' work. I would love to visit the exhibit. I may have to plan a little day trip to the museum.

The most interesting aspect of this exhibit, I think, is the interactivity between viewers. Everyone focuses on media being more interactive, but people often forget art. And art, expressive communication, is the ultimate interactive work. I like that museums are recognizing this. But, with that said, it would not work well with every exhibit, possibly just with more where the art is making more of a social or political statement. {I understand that all art is a statement in one form or another.}
