CHICAGO –Leave your selfie stick at home if you’re headed to the Art Institute of Chicago.
The device, used to improve self-photos, has been banned from the popular tourist attraction.
In January the institute quietly updated its policies to disallow the selfie sticks, saying the sticks pose a threat to the museum’s treasured art and other guests.
Other attractions in the U.S. that have banned selfie sticks: Detroit Institute of Arts, New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, along with the Smithsonian museums in Washington.
