Info

"Just Good Art: The Chuck Thurow Gift" exhibition will be on display at the Illinois State Museum from February 4 through May 7, 2017. 

This exhibition highlights a major gift of over 100 contemporary artworks given to the Illinois State Museum in 2016 by Chicago collector and arts advocate Chuck Thurow. Mr. Thurow, former Executive Director of the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, fostered direct engagement between artists and audiences through innovative exhibitions and commissioned projects. This is a significant addition to our permanent collection of outstanding work by Illinois-related artists, and is one of the largest, single donations of artworks in the Museum's 139 year history. There are 56 artists represented in this gift; 34 of which are new to our museum collection. The gift includes artworks by Dawoud Bey, Phyllis Bramson, Margaret Burroughs, Theaster Gates, Neil Goodman, Jackie Kazarian, Gladys Nilsson, Paul Sierra, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, and Karl Wirsum.
 
The Illinois State Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon until 4:30 p.m. Museum admission: $5 admission for adults 19-64; free admission for Museum members, children, seniors, and veterans.
