In accordance with the “stay at home” order for Illinois residents and in support of evolving public health measures related to the coronavirus and COVID-19, the Smart Museum of Art will remain closed through at least April 7. All on site public programs have been suspended until further notice. The Smart will continue to support the University of Chicago’s academic functions to the extent possible during Spring Quarter.
We will continue to monitor guidelines issued by the University of Chicago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Illinois, and the Chicago Department of Public Health. We will evaluate our decision regularly and may further adjust our response as the situation develops.
This decision was made in consultation with The Allure of Matter exhibition partner Wrightwood 659. Please check our website or social media channels for the latest updates, including any additional program cancellation or postponement notices.
We encourage you to visit theallureofmatter.org to explore an array of artist stories and experimental practices presented in our spring exhibition, The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China.
