Initiated by the Terra Foundation for American Art, Art Design Chicago is a spirited celebration of the unique and vital role Chicago plays as America’s crossroads of creativity and commerce. In 2018, this citywide partnership brought together 95+ cultural organizations to examine Chicago’s art and design legacy through exhibitions, public programs, special events, and tours, as well as several new publications, resulting in the first large-scale exploration of the topic to date.
The full 2018 website lives on, cataloguing everything that Art Design Chicago offered, as well as some current and upcoming exhibitions and programs.
