Smart Museum of Art University of Chicago
The Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago opens the world through art and ideas.
As the art museum of the University of Chicago, the Smart Museum of Art takes a distinctly interdisciplinary approach to the collection, display, and interpretation of art. Founded in 1974, the Smart is home to acclaimed special exhibitions and a permanent collection that spans five thousand years of artistic creation. Working in close collaboration with scholars from the University of Chicago, the Smart has established itself as a leading academic art museum and an engine of adventurous thinking about the visual arts and their place in society.
All is close except the modern gallery. Travel so far for nothing and the webpage don't indicate that is under construction. What a shame on the museum.
This museum exceeded my expectations. The art inside was intricate and unique with a variety of pieces from around the world and different times. It's also a decent size and well worth a visit.
Really wonderful small museum with many opportunities of engagement. Love the cafe space outside of the gallery. Beautiful outdoor grounds as well.
It worth to visit if you love arts. The good thing is no admission fees required.
Lovely eclectic collection of art. Staff are friendly and museum is accessible.
