Chicago Cultural Center — Exhibitions

The Exhibitions Program at the Chicago Cultural Center is committed to organizing and presenting a range of diverse and engaging exhibitions devoted to the visual arts and contemporary culture. Primary among the artists shown are those based in Chicago and the Midwest alongside others from across the U.S. and abroad. Additionally, through regular offerings of artist and curator gallery talks, lectures, panel discussions and events related to current exhibitions, a context is created for understanding recent art and design for a broad audience of residents and visitors to Chicago.
