Strengthen the collection

The Smart is an intimate museum for bold encounters with art. It seeks to acquire great works that will bolster and extend the core strengths of its collection: Asian art, European art, modern art and design, and contemporary art. Gifts of art create research opportunities for established and upcoming scholars, while also introducing art to schoolchildren on Chicago’s South Side. And, of course, bringing new works of art into the collection creates new opportunities for deep exploration through the Smart’s revelatory exhibitions.

Smart Museum staff would be delighted to discuss your desire to donate works of art that could enhance its collections. To begin that conversation, please contact the museum.
