Chicago City of Art


About Chicago

The City of Chicago

Many think of New York as the prime hub for art in the State. However, Chicago should not go amiss for art-loving travelers. With various art galleries and districts all over the city, Chicago offers many opportunities to experience wonderful art and culture. The Art Institute of Chicago is a clear must-see (find its Uart profile here).

West Chicago

Named by the Odyssey as the ‘Hottest New Block on the Chicago Art Scene,’ Chicago’s West Town neighborhood is the place to be as an art lover in Chicago. West Chicago Avenue is where you can find the best avant-garde designers, conceptual artworks and stand-out paintings.

Art Hotels in Chicago

If you’re keen to experience art throughout your entire stay, look no further than the hotels dedicated to showcasing world class artworks. The James, for example, situated on the Magnificent Mile, is home to artworks from local and international artists who are both prominent and up-and-coming.

Chicago's Museums

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), with regular exhibitions and talks throughout the year, is a great place to experience a wide array of contemporary artworks. We recommend visiting their website to find out the current and upcoming exhibitions.
