The Peninsula Chicago Celebrates Expo Chicago With The Contemporary Art Exhibition Whoville Featuring Highlights From The Beth Rudin Dewoody Collection
The Peninsula Chicago is hosting an exciting art exhibition from noted contemporary collector, Beth Rudin DeWoody’s art collection, curated by Laura Dvorkin in collaboration with Circa 1881.
Titled Whoville, this exhibition coincides with the annual EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, taking place at Navy Pier, September 22 to 25, 2016. The installation, featuring a number of Chicago artists, debuts on September 9, 2016and will be displayed throughout the hotel’s lobby through October 23, 2016, as a part of a public art project. This is the second year The Peninsula Chicago has presented an art installation in conjunction with EXPO CHICAGO. The Peninsula Chicago’s partnership with Circa 1881 and Ms. DeWoody is a natural extension of the The Peninsula Hotels’ wildly successful art initiatives around the world.
Of Whoville, DeWoody says, “Collaborating with Circa 1881 on this exhibition has provided an exciting opportunity to share my collection with Peninsula Chicago guests and the greater public. I look forward to attending EXPO CHICAGO and exhibiting theWhoville artists in Chicago, a city to which many of them are historically linked.”
