Chicago's Art-Related Archival Materials

A Terra Foundation Resource

In 2015, with funding provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art, more than 75 Chicago archival repositories were surveyed. Browse by repository or search across the nearly 900 records to discover the history of American Art in Chicago.

The Archives of American Art would like to acknowledge the work of Chicago-based art historian Dr. Wendy Greenhouse who completed the survey, and the valued participation of the contributing institutions and organizations.
