University of Chicago students are invited to join Smart Museum curators for a virtual private tour of Take Care at the Smart Museum of Art.

Drawing generously from the Smart Museum’s permanent collection, this large-scale group exhibition seeks to unpack matters of care from the personal to the collective. The artworks in Take Care draw on a range of themes—from familial relations and societal obligations, to immersive networks and ecologies of care—examining how systems of maintenance, sustenance, and storytelling can bring about collective action.

This event is organized by the Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry at the Smart Museum of Art for University of Chicago students during Orientation for the 2020-2021 academic year.
