Arts Club of Chicago

All persons will be required to wear a mask upon entry. Please maintain and respect social distance while inside.


Since 1916, The Arts Club of Chicago has been a preeminent exhibitor of international art, a forum for established and emerging artists, and a celebrated venue for performers from around the world. For over 100 years, The Arts Club has opened its membership to artists and patrons of the arts, and its exhibitions and programming to the public.

The Arts Club offers four public exhibitions per year of global contemporary art, a permanent collection including work by many modern masters, and a diverse calendar of programming offered to its membership and guests. Each year since 2015, The Arts Club commissions new public artworks by Chicago-based artists through its Garden Project series.

In addition to our regularly scheduled gallery hours, The Arts Club hosts free public lectures and performances on weekday evenings and Saturday afternoons. On the first Saturday of every month, The Arts Club offers a tour of its permanent collection, which includes work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Sigmar Polke, Peter Doig, Natalia Goncharova, and more.
