Tuesday, 28-Dec-2010

Opened November, 2010

After a five-year absence, the Art Institute welcomes the much-anticipated return of one of the most beloved treasures in its vast collection, Marc Chagall’s America Windows. First debuting at the Art Institute in 1977 and made forever famous less than ten years later by an appearance in the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the “Chagall Windows,” as they are more popularly known, hold a special place in the hearts of Chicagoans. Following an intensive period of conservation treatment and archival research, the windows return as the stunning centerpiece of a new presentation at the east end of the museum’s Arthur Rubloff building. 111 S. Michigan Ave.
