Exhibition Website

Jan 14 2017 - Jul 30 2017

Planning and creating public art can be a risky enterprise. For over 200 years, Chicago has been putting art in public places. Sometimes it’s loved. Sometimes it’s hated. To further complicate matters, times change – and so do people and tastes. See for yourself in this exhibition of stories and historical public artwork of the past 200 years. Part of the City of Chicago's Year of Public Art.
