Art Design Chicago: Culture at the Intersection
As part of the citywide initiative Art Design Chicago in the summer and fall of 2018, the Chicago Cultural Alliance will produce a series of five programs with ten cultural heritage museums to explore Culture at the Intersection of art and design.
Programs include a walking tour of the iconic Chinatown buildings that were, unknown to many, designed by Norwegian architects; the art behind Humboldt Park through three generations of immigrants to the neighborhood, and the importance of textile arts to community development in Bronzeville and Little Village in the 20th century. Full schedule and details coming soon!
Collaborating museums and centers include: Swedish American Museum, Chinese American Museum of Chicago, Bronzeville Historical Society, OPEN Center for the Arts, National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture, Trickster Art Gallery, National Cambodian Heritage Museum, American Indian Center of Chicago, and National Hellenic Museum.
