Unrestricted support

Your generous unrestricted support will enhance the intellectual and cultural activity that takes place at the Smart Museum of Art and ensure that the museum remains free to all. Unrestricted funding provides flexibility, giving the museum the ability to develop exceptional new exhibitions, deepen its collection, partner with university faculty and staff, serve the communities of the South Side and greater Chicago, and provide free learning opportunities to children, teens, and families. Gifts to support the general operations of the Smart do all of these things and more, allowing the Museum to remain a vital part of the Chicago arts landscape.
