To be honest, I often groaned and moaned about it. Turns out, as I look back, all those games of Masterpiece had an impact and it's about as close to an art museum as I got with my family as I was growing up.
On my recent visit with Mark, Sandy, Paige and Alex to the Art Institute of Chicago, one of my goals was to find as many paintings from the old Masterpiece Art Auction Game (1970 version) as I could. I had success.
