The Block Museum of Art is the fine art museum of Northwestern University. It serves the academic and cultural needs of the university and the Chicago-area community with thought-provoking exhibitions, a rich and diverse permanent collection, original scholarship, dynamic educational and cultural programs, and classic and contemporary film screenings at Block Cinema. The Block enriches teaching and learning on the campuses of Northwestern University and in the communities of their surrounding regions by presenting art across time, cultures, and media; convening interdisciplinary discussions in which art is a springboard for exploring issues and ideas; collecting art that supports the Northwestern University curriculum. Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2015, the Block is a dynamic, imaginative resource that provides experiential learning opportunities bridging the classroom and the world beyond the campus. It is free and open to all.
