From Spaces to Places: Public Art Walking Tour

Scott Burton, Bench and Table, 1988

Public art on the University of Chicago campus is a fascinating, spontaneous experience, with some sculptures boldly claiming open spaces and others tucked unexpectedly between buildings. This one-hour tour covers a small sample of the stunning works that have helped shape UChicago's intellectual and cultural life for decades.

Fall tours (Thursdays, September 14 and 28; October 12 and 26; and November 9) begin at 5:30 pm at Black Sphere, across the street from Cobb Hall, 5811 S. Ellis Ave, and end at the Smart Museum of Art.

FREE, but space is limited. Please register in advance.
