The Pride & Perils of Chicago’s Public Art
January 14–July 30, 2017
Chicago Cultural Center, Landmark Chicago Gallery and Randolph Stairs, 1st Floor South
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.
