COVID-19 UPDATE

Temporarily Closed

In support of the City of Chicago's stay-at-home advisory and the expanded precautions the University of Chicago is taking in response to the pandemic, the Smart Museum of Art will temporarily close to the public beginning November 14, 2020. 

No re-opening date has been set at this time. The Smart will continue to monitor guidelines issued by the University of Chicago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Illinois, and the City of Chicago. 

We encourage you to continue to engage with our collection of virtual tours, online programs, and at-home art activities available on the Smart from Home digital resources page. Through the Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry, the Museum will also continue to support the University’s academic functions to the extent possible during the remainder of Autumn Quarter.

Please check our website or social media channels for the latest updates, and take care.
