Mayor Richard and Maggie Daley School Studio Program
Want your students to have a hands-on art-making experience in the museum? Select one of the Mayor Richard and Maggie Daley School Studio Programs, which explore art making and materials through the museum's encyclopedic collection. During this two-hour experience, students will start with a one-hour docent-led tour in the galleries, then create original art work with a teaching artist in a studio space overlooking Millennium Park. Studio experiences can are booked through the Student Tour Application and can be found under the listing STUDIO: Art From Many Places Tour (grades 3-5) and STUDIO: Art across Cultures (grades 6-12).
Daley School Studio Programs are supported by the Woman’s Board of the Art Institute and JPMorgan Chase

56 min 5 sec ago The Art Institute of Chicago COMING SOON—Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium
Explore the relentlessly innovative works of Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, arguably the most influential Latin American artist of the post–World War II period.
Oiticica’s adventurous works on paper paved the way for increasingly immersive large-scale installations that inspired Tropicália, a powerful movement in all the arts and a political position against both the right’s conservatism and the left’s desire for a purely Brazilian art. Throughout his brief but energetic career, Oiticica seamlessly melded formal and social concerns in his art, seeking to be internationally relevant and, at the same time, specifically Brazilian.
