Contemporary Art in Chicago

Contemporary Art in Chicago is a hands-on introduction to Chicago's vibrant visual art scene. Each week, the class will virtually visit museums and galleries throughout the city. Students will also have the unique opportunity to step behind-the-scenes into artists' studios and collectors' homes, where they can view works in progress, ask questions, and get to know the real people who make up Chicago's art world. Classroom discussions and informal Q & A's with artists and curators provide context and lend a sense of intimacy.
