Department of Photography Opening Collection

The Society for Contemporary Art will have a private viewing of The Art Institute’s new Department of Photography. Planning for this facility took three years and construction ten months. It is the most advanced and well-equipped center for the study, exhibition and care of photographs in any Museum in the world. At the time of our visit, the exhibition “A History of Photography from Chicago Collections” will be shown. Several of the gifts from the Society for Contemporary Art are included. David Travis, Curator, and members of his staff will conduct a tour of the facility and the exhibition.
