The Art Institute of Chicago was founded as both a museum and school for the fine arts in 1879, a critical era in the history of Chicago as civic energies were devoted to rebuilding the metropolis that had been destroyed by the Great Fire of 1871.

  • Chicago, The Art Institute1

    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-2158828-chicago1/
    2. 2. Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States, after New York City and Los Angeles. With 2.7 million residents, it is the most populous city in both the U.S. state of Illinois and the American Midwest. Its metropolitan area, sometimes called Chicagoland, is home to 9.5 million people and is the third-largest in the United States. In 2012, Chicago hosted 46.37 million international and domestic visitors, an overall visitation record. Chicago's culture includes contributions to the visual arts, novels, film, theater, especially improvisational comedy, and music, particularly jazz, blues, soul, and the creation of house music
    3. 3. The Art Institute of Chicago was founded as both a museum and school for the fine arts in 1879, a critical era in the history of Chicago as civic energies were devoted to rebuilding the metropolis that had been destroyed by the Great Fire of 1871.
    4. 4. Its first collections consisting primarily of plaster casts, the Art Institute found its permanent home in 1893, when it moved into a building, constructed jointly with the city of Chicago for the World's Columbian Exposition, at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Adams Street. That building, its entry flanked by the two famous bronze lions, remains the "front door" of the museum even today.
    5. 5. Two bronze lions guard the entrance to The Art Institute of Chicago. They have been a symbol of the museum for over 120 years ... since 1894. The building was erected to house an international congress held in conjunction with the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. During the fair, Edward Kemeys exhibited the plaster studies for the sculptures. The finished bronze sculptures were installed one year later in 1894.
    6. 6. Edward L. Kemeys (1843 – 1907) was an American sculptor, best known for his sculptures of animals
    7. 7. Edward L. Kemeys (1843 –1907) Lions, 1894
    8. 8. The Modern Wing
    9. 9. Designed by Pritzker Prize– winning architect Renzo Piano, the Modern Wing is the new home for the museum’s collection of 20th- and 21st-century art. A decade in the making, this 264,000 square-foot building makes the Art Institute the second-largest art museum in the United States.
    10. 10. The building houses the museum’s world- renowned collections of modern European painting and sculpture, contemporary art, architecture and design, and photography.
    11. 11. The Modern Wing allows the Art Institute to take its rightful place as one of the world’s great collections of modern and contemporary art.

    27. 27. Chicago Stock Exchange Entrance Arch Designed by Louis Sullivan. The east entrance of the Art Institute of Chicago is marked by the stone arch entrance to the old Chicago Stock Exchange. Designed by Louis Sullivan in 1894, the Exchange was torn down in 1972, but salvaged portions of the original trading room were brought to the Art Institute and reconstructed.
    28. 28. The upper spandrels of the arch are two commemorative medallions, four feet in diameter. The left medallion depicts the house of P.F.W. Peck, the first structure on this site.
    29. 29. The right medallion originally carried the legend: "The First Brick Building Built in Chicago Was Built upon This Site"
    30. 30. As the Stock Exchange was nearing completion, this was discovered to be untrue, and the right medallion was replaced with the date "1893," the year construction began.
