Here you may dine with the embryonic artists, sculptors, decorators, and architects of the town. It is also a charming place in which to rest and have tea when you get "museum fatigue." At noon it is crowded with young men and women students from the various schools of the Art Institute. Cafeteria service is in the main lunch room. The tea room is in Mather Hall, adjoining, the walls of which contain colorful and whimsical murals of Art Institute life, the work of Ethel Spears and Louise Taylor.
