This elegant staircase, located just off the Michigan Avenue lobby, majestically welcomes your guests with stately polished-marble construction, dating back to 1910. On the main floor, the sweeping staircase is encircled by the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries and Fullerton Hall; it rises with grace and grandeur to a sunlit space on the second level surrounded architectural fragments from some of Chicago's most legendary buildings. This open atrium flows into the crown jewel of the Art Institute, the Pritzker Galleries of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism.
Imagine your next special event beginning around the Woman's Board Grand Staircase, the perfect spot for your registration and pre-dinner reception and only steps away from world-class treasures by Degas, Monet, and Renoir!
