“Students saw how works of art from the past and from different cultures can be relevant to their own experiences.”

–Chicago Public School teacher

“Being part of [the American Sources] program I was inspired when I, as a teacher, learned about Train Station and saw it hanging in the gallery of the Art Institute. As a teacher, this is a nice reminder of how exciting it is to be a learner, and I hope my students experience the same sense of awe and fascination and questions when they see the art during their tour at the museum.”

–Chicago Public School teacher
