Griffin Court decorated for an event

An elegant and light-filled venue, Griffin Court is heart of the museum’s Modern Wing, designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. This expansive, luminous space is a blank canvas that can be arranged to host seated dinners and large-scale receptions and is one of the most sought-after events spaces within the Art Institute.

Combine Griffin Court with the adjacent Pritzker Garden to provide your guests with a tranquil, outdoor retreat.
