Envision The Bigger Picture: Art Design Chicago Year-Round

Spearheaded by the Terra Foundation for American Art, Art Design Chicago is a year-long initiative that explores Chicago’s role as a catalyst and incubator for innovations in art and design. Focusing on the period between the 1871 Great Chicago Fire and the turn of the 21st century, Art Design Chicago will feature more than 25 exhibitions, several new scholarly publications, a documentary, as well as hundreds of academic and public programs, presented from January–December 2018.

Together, these activities shine a light on Chicago’s art and design legacy, providing new insights into the city’s enduring influence on fine and decorative arts, graphic and commercial design, product development, and film, and revealing lesser-known narratives of ingenuity and perseverance.
