Wikipedia excerpt:
The Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA), which opened in the fall of 2005, is unique among Chicago's many museums for mounting exhibits that explore the spiritual in art from all cultures, faiths, and periods. LUMA is located on Loyola University Chicago's Water Tower Campus in downtown Chicago, at 820 North Michigan Ave. LUMA's permanent collection comprises the Martin D'Arcy Collection of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque art and artifacts; pieces range in date from 1150 to 1800. Established in 1969 by Father Donald Rowe, SJ (a Jesuit priest), the collection contains some 300 pieces. It was named after British humanist and Jesuit theologian Father Martin D'Arcy, SJ, who amassed an art collection at Campion Hall, Oxford University, in England. The collection was formerly located at Loyola's Lakeshore Campus, in Rogers Park, Chicago.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the LUMA homepage or our exhibitions list for Chicago-wide exhibits.
