About the Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute of Chicago is located in Grant Park in the Downtown area. The Art Institute was founded in 1879 and is frequented by 1.5 million visitors each year. With over 300,000 works of art in the permanent collection and dozens of special temporary exhibitions year round, the Art Institute of Chicago is the country’s second-largest art museum (behind New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art).

Fun fact: The Art Institute of Chicago was featured in a scene of the iconic 1986 John Hughes film, Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
