Presented as part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art exploring Chicago’s art and design legacy, "Everyone’s a Designer/Everyone’s Design" is a free traveling museum exhibition that explores and celebrates everyday Chicagoans’ influence on art and design in the city. Travelling across Chicago’s Cultural Centers, the exhibition tells the stories of five people, the homes they’ve made uniquely their own, and the rich design and architectural history of their neighborhoods.
