The Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago is a site for rigorous inquiry and exchange that encourages the examination of complex issues through the lens of art objects and artistic practice. Through strong community and scholarly partnerships, the Smart Museum incorporates diverse ideas, identities, and experiences into its exhibitions and collections, academic inquiry, and public programming. The Smart offers programs, supports artistic interventions, and provides platforms that address the pressing cultural, social, and political issues of our moment. These projects are driven by the intellectual and cultural energy of our place—the University of Chicago on the South Side of Chicago—and situate the Museum as a critical civic site for its publics to convene in meaningful dialogue and action. The Smart first opened in 1974. Admission is always free and open to all.
