Our Museum - Art Institute of Chicago

It was faculty at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago who founded the Art Institute of Chicago's museum as a teaching resource for students. Today, the Art Institute of Chicago has the world's third-largest collection of art and is an integral part of the education of every SAIC student.

Put Google images aside. At the museum you can see the incredible color variations in a Van Gogh portrait, Picasso's works on paper that are too light sensitive to be on display for the public, Rembrandt paintings and drawings, the first exhibit devoted to architect David Adjaye, site-specific sculpture, fiber art designed and executed by Lenore Tawney, and Diane Arbus' famous Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey./p>
