The Smart Museum of Art (website) is a Museum in Chicago.
Official description from Smart Museum of Art:
As the art museum of the University of Chicago, the Smart Museum of Art takes a distinctly interdisciplinary approach to the collection, display, and interpretation of art. Founded in 1974, the Smart is home to acclaimed special exhibitions and a permanent collection that spans five thousand years of artistic creation. Working in close collaboration with scholars from the University of Chicago, the Smart has established itself as a leading academic art museum and an engine of adventurous thinking about the visual arts and their place in society.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art is an art museum located on the campus of the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. The permanent collection of over 10,000 objects includes works by Francisco Goya, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, Ansel Adams, and Mark Rothko. Admission is free. The Smart Museum and the adjacent Cochrane-Woods Art Center were designed by the architect Edward Larrabee Barnes.

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

In the meantime, check out the Smart Museum of Art homepage or our exhibitions list for Chicago-wide exhibits.
