Exhibitions at SAIC are a significant resource for the School community and the city at large. The Sullivan Galleries, SITE Galleries, and other temporary locations on- and off-campus are engaged as sites of interaction, experimentation, and dialogue among students, faculty, and alumni, as well as places for collaboration with Chicago’s artists and other cultural institutions. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.  

To ensure the well-being of our community, SAIC has made the difficult decision to suspend all public programs through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year, including all spring and summer end-of-the-year and thesis exhibitions at Sullivan Galleries and off-site locations. This includes:

Spring Undergraduate Show

MFA Show

Film, Video, New Media, Animation, and Sound Festival

IMPACT Performance Festival

Design Show

Low Res MFA Show

In order to celebrate and share the work of SAIC’s talented artists, designers, and scholars, SAIC’s administration, staff, and faculty are developing robust virtual platforms that will launch in the coming months. Please check back soon for more information. 

We look forward to welcoming you back on our campus for exhibitions and programs in the near future.
