Block Museum of Art


What’s inside the Block?  It depends on how you look.

Northwestern University’s Block Museum of Art is a dynamic, imaginative, and innovative teaching and learning resource for the school and its surrounding communities, featuring a global exhibition program that crosses time periods and cultures and serves as a springboard for thought-provoking discussions. The Block mounts exhibitions; commissions new work; organizes lectures, symposia, and workshops; and screens classic and contemporary films at its in-house cinema. With over 6,000 artworks, the permanent collection of The Block Museum boasts rich and diverse holdings of prints, drawings, and photography and continues to expand its holdings of works in every medium that that support the museum’s global and interdisciplinary mission.

Always free and open to all.
