This walking tour focuses on private establishments in the Loop:  The University Club, The Union League Club, and Bank of America, all of which have collections featuring Chicago artists. The University Club collects post-World War II art by Chicago artists with works from artists affiliated with the Hairy Who and Chicago Imagists hanging in the newly-renovated Presidents’ Bar, as well as contemporary works located throughout the Clubhouse. American art, particularly Midwestern art of the 20th century, forms the nucleus of The Union League Club’s collection. Bank of America’s collection matches communities with art and includes the Hairy Who as well as artists who taught at the School of the Art Institute or are otherwise affiliated with Chicago. 

The tour includes a private guided visit at each location. It is presented by Noble Art Tours and is led by Susan Musich, a nonprofit arts consultant, Executive Director of Homeroom, and former lecturer and educator at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Please note: The dress code at The University Club and The Union League Club is business casual. We kindly ask that you do not wear denim, athletic attire, gym shoes, tee shirts, sweat shirts, torn clothing, or flip flops.

Tickets are $20 per person.
