Chicagoans like to pretend we don't care when people from other cities (cough, New York) notice us, but that's just a front. Really, it makes us giddy. Case in point: "City Self." The exhibit opens today and centers on the 2011 film Chicago by New Yorker Sarah Morris, with other tributes culled from the museum's collection.
