Located just off the Michigan Avenue lobby, this elegant staircase majestically welcomes your guests with stately polished-marble construction dating back to 1910. On the main floor, the sweeping staircase is encircled by the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries and Fullerton Hall; it rises with grace and grandeur to a sunlit space on the second level, surrounded by architectural fragments from some of Chicago’s most legendary buildings. The open atrium is adjacent to the Pritzker Galleries of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, which may be booked for gallery viewing.
For more information, please use the inquiry form. To book a viewing appointment, please call Bon Appétit at the Art Institute of Chicago at (312) 443-3530.
