Museum From Home

While socially distanced our community can still connect to each other through art, education, and architecture. Visitors can experience our past and present exhibitions online, and will be guided through interpretive hands-on activities. Check here for weekly updates, and follow the museum on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter for even more with the hashtag #MuseumFromHome

Could Be Architecture: McCormick AfterParti online guide and DIY puppetry

The Museum From Home launch brings the current exhibition in Mies van der Rohe’s house into your home. This downloadable online guide takes you through installation images, thought-provoking questions, archival photographs, and a video tour with the Could Be Architecture duo and WGN’s Ana Belaval.

This exhibit can also be brought to life through a hands-on activity that can be done from home. Children and families will create their own puppets with household materials. Post your creative characters online and tag the museum to share with the wider community.
