The Art Institute of Chicago: Picture This

August 6, 2014 11:01 am

Chicago’s place in the history of American art is assured, but it’s fair to say that the city’s greatest creators wouldn’t have thrived without the presence of the Art Institute of Chicago. This extensive museum located in Grant Park was opened in 1866 by a group of 35 artists with the intention of creating a free school with its own attached museum. When the 1892 World’s Fair came to Chicago, the group pushed for a building to house its collection, and the result was its current building on Michigan Avenue.

Over the years, the museum has been at the forefront of many trends in the visual arts, especially the quest to have photography and documentary film recognized as a legitimate art form. The current museum is a must-visit, with holdings including more than 30 paintings by Claude Monet, works by Matisse and Seurat and important American works like Edward Hopper’s iconic “Nighthawks.”
