A letter from the director
Hello, Chicago! We look forward to welcoming you back, in person, to the museum.
We want to first thank you for virtually visiting while we were closed. This time has afforded us the opportunity to stretch ourselves creatively and create a new program of online talks, studio visits, and virtual galleries. That programming will continue in our new world—visit our Commons Online weekly to engage, explore, learn, and create at home.
COVID-19 has changed our protocols and we have new practices in place to keep staff and you, our visitors, healthy. Look below to learn about those practices and how to visit our building.
We’ve made admission to the museum free for the months of July and August, so that there are no barriers to anyone who wants to find respite in the galleries. We know now, more than ever, the healing power and connection we find in art. We welcome you.
