DePaul Art Museum is a 15,000-square-foot building on the university’s Lincoln Park campus. Staffed by museum professionals, it serves as a focal point for teaching and discussion through visual arts and material culture. It supports the educational mission of the university through its collections, exhibitions, programs, and events, which allow both students and members of the wider community to explore broadly the visual representation of ideas over time and space. Its collections and programs are diverse, but strongly represent art of the Chicago area. Many of its projects are historical or thematic in focus, but the gallery has a commitment to showing contemporary art as a means of exploring aspects of our own culture.Exhibitions
The museum offers a wide variety of special exhibitions in all media throughout the year, from thematic and historical exhibitions to works by contemporary artists. Recent presentations include paintings, sculpture, printmaking and installation by contemporary Iraqi artists; early twentieth-century photographs by Eugene Atget and Berenice Abbott, and old master prints by such artists as Dürer, Cranach, Rembrandt and Goya. Lectures, concerts, and special events provide additional perspectives.
Exhibitions and additions to the museum’s permanent collection are selected for their relevance to the museum’s mission and to the curriculum of DePaul University. Brief inquiries regarding proposed exhibitions may be sent to the director, but please note that exhibitions are scheduled two or more years in advance. Most acquisitions and exhibitions are initiated by the professional staff, not through unsolicited proposals. The museum is not responsible for the return of any unsolicited materials, including any photos or CDs. Please do not bring or or send original works, as the museum cannot guarantee their safety.
