The member card features a selection of images—choose between iconic permanent collection works and featured special exhibition pieces—from the permanent collection and a barcode that can be scanned at entrances to the museum and special exhibitions.
The Art Institute of Chicago brings select content from its long-standing and award-winning member publication, Member Magazine, to iPad users.
