As the fine arts museum of the University of Chicago, the Smart Museum of Art is home to thought-provoking exhibitions and an exquisite collection of more than 15,000 objects.

Rehung annually, the permanent collection galleries feature paintings by Arthur Dove, Childe Hassam, Norman Lewis, Joan Mitchell, Diego Rivera, and Mark Rothko; the dining room furniture designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the nearby Robie House; a selection of Buddhist sculpture from China, Japan, and Korea; rich examples of European painting and works on paper; and provocative works of contemporary art. 

Special exhibitions in 2017 include Vostell Concrete 1969–1973, Classicisms, The Hysterical Material, and Revolution Every Day

Admission is always free. All are welcome. 

Family Days: On the 1st Saturday of each month, the Smart offers free drop-in art activities for families.

Miriam’s Café: The Smart’s bright, art-filled café serves premium coffee and offers a selection of art books.
