Exhibit Brainstorming

Mitchell Museum, Stanley Golder Library

With so many stories to tell of American Indian art, culture, and history, the Mitchell Museum is seeking community input in the development of its upcoming exhibit on local Native American history opening later this year, as well as the redevelopment of the permanent core exhibition.

In partnership with Illinois Humanities and Navy Pier’s 100th anniversary celebration, the museum will offer light refreshments and free tickets for Navy Pier’s Ferris wheel to participants in our brainstorming session.
