Located on both the north and south ends of Millennium Park, the Boeing Galleries house temporary modern and contemporary art exhibitions where visitors can directly experience the work and expressions of current artists.
Set in an ideal urban setting for socially contextualized art and architectural exhibitions, the Galleries provide a high-quality narrative and cultural context of the art and architecture in our day and age. In the years since the Park’s opening, the Boeing Galleries have developed an international reputation for the quality of modern and contemporary art exhibited therein. The cost of exhibition curation and management is completely underwritten by the Millennium Park Foundation using funds from private donors.
Christine Tarkowski and Edra Soto
Millennium Park Foundation commissioned Edra Soto and Christine Tarkowski to create new respective works in 2019 for the Galleries and allow these works to be responsive to the greater space of Millennium Park. While each artist met the original challenge, they also incorporated their own historical and cultural influences into their respective works.
Soto’s Screenhouse and Tarkowski’s When we call… are on display in the Boeing Galleries through spring 2023. Both artists are alumni and faculty of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
