This small museum has very interesting exhibits. When I visited it, they had three exhibitions, from which I really enjoyed two of them. It is located very near to Fullerton station on Red line and it is free of charge.

Depending on the exhibits open at the time, this small museum may be worth a visit. It's located conveniently at the Fullerton Red Line CTA stop and easy to get to. The problem is that the Art Institute and other local museums dwarf it my...More

This small museum does more for Chicago Imagists than the city's big museums and even the one founded to showcase Chicago art. It's a nice space, well lit with the art respectfully displayed. Any show there is well worth a visit.

The DePaul Art Museum in my humble opinion is very under utilized. There are fascinating pieces here that change frequently. They also provide a slate for their art students to showcase their many talents as well. Do yourself a favor and visit this the next...More

Saw a nice exhibition about soil and the human relationship to the soil. The exhibition was very good, and the people working at the gallery (the "guards" in the rooms) were very knowledgable and happy to help or just talk about the art.

Couple of rooms, very well presented, new emerging talent, friendly staff and free. If you are around the area and like museums, do pay it a visit!
