We support museums and cultural institutions that bring thought-provoking exhibitions and performances to the City of Chicago. We work with the Art Institute of Chicago’s Photography Department on acquisitions and exhibition development. Recent acquisitions include major bodies of work by Ed Ruscha, James Welling, Shomei Tomatsu and Zoe Leonard, and Sophie Calle, among others.
We value organizations using art to explore and advance environmental, cultural, and human rights issues. To spark dialogue and encourage activism through public art, we supported Ai Weiwei: Yours Truly, an award-winning documentary film and The Gun Violence Memorial Project.
