One of the best Architectural Expositions in the US. A lot of diversity and ideas from great designers and artists.
While in Chicago, make sure to check out the beautiful Tiffany stained glass chandelier at the Chicago Cultural Center.
Had a very fun time exploring the new cultural center in Chicago! Best part was looking at the different art exhibits within the building.
Amazing turn of the century architecture. Hard to believe that it's located in a heartland city and not in Italy, Russia, or Hungary.
Unfortunately, I did it have a lot of time to explore the Chicago Cultural Center-- but what I did see was an architecturally gorgeous building and a series of galleries featuring a variety of artists. And it was FREE! It will definitely be a return stop on my next visit.
Beautiful building! Has great programs and classes. I enjoy classes there. Worth seeing for the culture.
This used to be a Chicago public library and is rich in architectural and political history. A must see if you are in Chicago.
With frequently changing exhibits, the Center is a place worth revisiting. In addition to the visibly gorgeous infrastructure, the Center houses wonderful artistic displays rich in reflections of Chicago- past, present and future day. There's no entry fee, a fun public work space (pictured) and countless brochures on other Chicago cultural havens.
With all the tiled mosaic in elaborate patterns, one might mistake the interiors of this building for a former temple rather than a former public library. The names of the great authors on the walls, however, quickly straighten out this misperception. Fun fact: in an attempt to preserve the English language so close to the French border of Canada, England sent tomes of books.... As there was no library at the time, one was built (fancy, like all the expensive books). Today, there are no more bookshelves, but there are many weddings and art showcases.
