It was interesting, reasonable price the only downside they had a few rooms open they were remodeling so a few of the art rooms were closed

We enjoyed the special Comic exhibit. Very good museum store! The 76 year-old man married to Naomi recalled many comics, but your exhibits informed us of a history of comics and talented cartoonists never imagined ! The cultural and anti-racism messages are so important to your visitors…
Fun and Learning

The Comics Strip exhibit was terrific!!! Loved going back in time and seeing the artistry - ink drawings, the humor etc. I also liked seeing some of today’s talent.
On a more delicate note, the restrooms need attention/cleaning/sanitizing more often ugh
Very nice place to visit

Chicago Comics exhibition was amazing. Paintings of Christina Quarles were also breathtaking. It was really fun to explore art and learn more.
Fun cartoon exhibit
Linda_C, Jul 2021
Fun cartoon exhibit. Most interesting were comics by African-American artists in 60s-80’s.
Would have liked more material from 60’s, as well as some comics from the Chicago Sun-Times. The exhibit was focused more on contemporary “underground “ cartoons.
Give your money to the homeless

Extremely disappointing don’t waste your time. The staff was rude but the customers were even more rude. Your money would be better spent given to the homeless
A MUST SEE

Nice layout and variety of artists.
Good value for the price.
Some displays were a little edgy for us B
Educational and enriching

Very well organized, attended is well lit, positioned and composed. For those who appreciate contemporary art, it’s an opportunity to rediscover or discover a few remarkable artists. Unfortunately some of work are heavily politicized, but not all.
Oscar_A, Apr 2021
excellent experience, the works of art are very well explained and give you a general idea of the author, the staff are very professional and helpful, it is highly recommended and very good

Perhaps I don’t understand contemporary art. I thought what was on display in Chicago was disappointing. It has such a terrific location but the variety of display was very poor.
