The American Art Museum of Chicago is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its creation, opening a new exhibit entitled Art & Life in the 21st Century.
The new exhibit is the second installment of the exhibition, which explores the legacy of art in Chicago and beyond.
The museum’s permanent exhibition, Art & Live in the Future: A Contemporary Art and Art History Journey, opened in 2015 and includes work from internationally renowned contemporary artists such as Paul Klee, James Kallum, David Fincher, Richard Meier, and Michael Ondaatje.
A series of exhibitions and lectures on art history, design, and culture, the exhibition is the brainchild of the Chicago Art Institute (CHAI) and Art Center of Chicago.
In 2018, the museum partnered with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) to create a special exhibit titled Art & Lives: A Journey Through Chicago’s Art History.
This special exhibit will be shown at MOCA through April 2019.
MOCI will present the MOCa collection of more than 70 exhibitions on art, design and culture throughout Chicago and across the country.
The exhibition will also include works from the Chicago Museum of Art (CMA) in partnership with MOCO, which is part of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History.
