The Art Institute of Chicago boasts a collection that encompasses more than 5,000 years of artwork from every corner of the globe. Its massive collection can be neatly divided into a handful of categories, like artists who made their home in Chicago (think Frank Lloyd Wright and Angelo Testa) and pieces that bridge the gap between different cultures and societies.
In order to fully understand the scope of the Art Institute of Chicago, you have to see it for yourself. Come and explore original works by African, Asian, and American artists. Check out contemporary masterpieces and classic European paintings and sculptures. See a collection of photos, prints, and drawings. The museum also plays host to temporary exhibits that change all the time, so there's always a new subject to explore at this local institution.
