This exhibition provides the definitive introduction to Chicago’s first artistic movement, the Monster Roster.
This intimate exhibition brings together the kinds of works of art, both ancient and modern, that Monster Roster artists studied and appreciated.
In a site-specific installation, Jessica Stockholder intersects the Smart’s threshold with a wave of color and texture.
The modern gallery features European and American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts dating from the 1880s to the early 1960s.
The Asian collection encompasses a rich variety of forms, materials, and functions, ranging from millennia-old ritual objects to contemporary photography.
The Smart Museum’s European collection ranges from antiquity to the nineteenth century, with particular strengths in works on paper as well as Renaissance painting, sculpture, and decorative arts.
The contemporary collection reflects the rich diversity of recent art. In 2015–2016, the contemporary gallery will be the site of several special projects.
The outdoor sculpture garden features work by Scott Burton, Jene Highstein, Richard Hunt, Louise Nevelson, and Arnaldo Pomodoro.
