Artwork Resource Packet: <em>America Windows</em> by Marc Chagall

Artwork Resource Packet: America Windows by Marc Chagall

Presented as a gift to the Art Institute of Chicago in 1977, the America Windows remain an integral symbol of the city’s longstanding relationship with the arts. Artist Marc Chagall began working on his design for the windows in 1976, America’s bicentennial year, and constructed the windows as a tribute to the freedom of artistic expression enjoyed by the people of the United States. This teaching packet includes an essay, discussion questions, activity ideas, a glossary, and an image of the artwork.
