Gauguin at the Art Institute Package

Gauguin became an artist after traveling the world as a merchant marine and working as a stockbroker’s assistant. His unconventional artistic path made him uniquely open to exploring a wide range of materials, including wood, wax, and ceramics.  This exhibition, Gauguin:  Artist as Alchmeist, takes an in-depth look at post-Impressionist Paul Gauguin's creative process and how he challenged cultural, geographic and material boundaries.  June 25 - September 10 at the Art Institute and organized in conjunction with the Musee d'Orsay and Reunion des musees nationaux-Grand Palais.
 
The Art Institute of Chicago, founded in 1879 as both a museum and school, first stood on the southwest corner of State and Monroe Streets. It opened on its present site at Michigan Avenue and Adams Street in 1893. Built on rubble from the 1871 Chicago fire, the museum housed a collection of plaster casts and had a visionary purpose: to acquire and exhibit art of all kinds and to conduct programs of education. The collection now encompasses more than 5,000 years of human expression from cultures around the world, and the school's graduate program is continually ranked as one of the best in the country. Within the next decade, a new complex will continue this process of growth.
