Description

Public art is a fascinating, spontaneous experience, with some sculptures boldly claiming open spaces and others tucked unexpectedly between buildings. As part of the City of Chicago's Year of Public Art, this one-hour tour covers a small sample of the stunning works that have helped shape UChicago's intellectual and cultural life for decades.

Tours begin at the Black Sphere sculpture, across the street from Cobb Hall, 5811 S Ellis Ave, and conclude with complimentary refreshments in the Smart Museum lobby. For more information about public art on campus, visit publicart.uchicago.edu.

Presented by UChicago Arts and the Office of Civic Engagement, in partnership with the Smart Museum of Art.
