The Terra Foundation for American Art recognizes the importance of experiencing original works of art, beginning with the presentation and growth of its own art collection. Selected artworks from the collection are on display at the Art Institute of Chicago, and the foundation lends objects from the collection to exhibitions that advance scholarship in and the interpretation of American art.
Terra Collection at the Art Institute of Chicago
Since 2005, between 40 and 50 paintings from the collection have been on view in the American galleries at the Art Institute of Chicago. Together, the collections of the Terra Foundation and the Art Institute provide one of the nation’s most comprehensive presentations of American art. The foundation’s entire collection of works on paper is housed in the Jean and Steven Goldman Study Center of the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago.
