Curated Day Trip: The Art of Women in Chicago

Curated Day Trip: The Art of Women in Chicago

Join us for a one-of-a-kind experience exploring women artists in the Windy City. Head to the Art Institute of Chicago for two exhibitions focused on the works of female artists. Explore Radical Clay: Contemporary Women Artists from Japan and Georgia O’Keeffe: “My New Yorks.” While all women shown in the Artists from Japan have routinely confronted expectations about their practice, they have frequently responded by refusing gender-imposed constraints, whether by approaching traditionally “feminine” subjects—such as flowers—in unconventional ways or by creating so-called “masculine” works, such as large, geological forms. Meanwhile, the O’Keeffe exhibition is the first to seriously examine this feminist icon’s paintings, drawings, and pastels of urban landscapes, while situating them in the diverse context of her other compositions of the 1920s and early 1930s. Break up the day with lunch on your own, a self-guided tour of other women artists in the permanent collection or a guided tour of predominantly women designed, Lurie Garden across the street in Millenium Park.

Wrap up the day at the woman-owned The Village restaurant. Operated by third-generation owner Gina Capitanini, The Italian Village Restaurants are a driving force and a means of measurement for success in the Chicago dining scene since 1924. Travel to and from Chicago will be provided via charter bus. Expect a fair amount of standing and walking on this trip. Must be able to go up and down one flight of stairs for dinner. Dress for the weather. Admission to the Art Institute of Chicago, bus transportation, dinner, and all gratuities are included in the cost of registration.
