Event Details

The Art Institute of Chicago will mount a major new exhibition on Paul Gauguin June 25-September 10. It is the first show to examine the artist’s radical experiments in the applied arts, underscoring his achievements not only as a painter but also as a sculptor, printmaker, and decorator. After its Chicago debut, the exhibition travels to the Grand Palais in Paris. Please join us as Glencoe resident Allison Perelman, a research associate at the Art Institute of Chicago who has worked on the exhibition since its inception five years ago, discusses the important themes and artworks of the show and how they were brought to life in the galleries.
