WTTW presentes a four-part series exploring Chicago’s art and design history. Hosted by local artists and experts, including curator Naomi Beckwith and artist Miguel Aguilar, the episodes examine different facets of the city’s creative past: from the impact of Chicago’s institutions to its importance in the fields of design and advertising; from the history of African American artists who shaped the city to an in-depth look at the city’s most fiercely independent artists.

“Art and Design in Chicago” is now streaming on WTTW’s website.
