June 1 – June 30, 2012
By any chance if you find yourself in Chicago, The Chicago Design Museum is open from June 1-30, 2012, in a 6,000 sq./ft. location in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. CHIDM will host five exhibitions drawn from local, domestic and international sources. CHIDM will also be hosting events for students and professionals, presented within the context of our curated exhibitions. There is no fee to attend the museum, but there is a suggested $10 donation per visit.
The Chicago Design Museum hosts limited engagement exhibitions that focus on design excellence. It adapts to curated collections, and finds the appropriate environment for the work on display. The formality of a traditional museum is still found within the high standards of the curated work, while the pop-up format promotes intimate experiences that are less likely to be found in a brick-and-mortar institution.
The Chicago Design Museum is a collaborative effort between Mark Dudlik and Tanner Woodford, and is part of Lost Creature: a non-profit 501(c)(3) that aims to bridge culture and creativity with community projects.
