To support the multiday seminar “Chicago Designs: New Approaches for Teaching Politics, Commerce, and Culture.” Developed for university faculty from a variety of disciplines, the program highlights key topics in Chicago’s design history, ranging from the legacy of the New Bauhaus to the impact of the city’s African American design community, and provides hands-on opportunities at the Newberry Library and other local archives. Participants build and share curricular projects to be made available on a website created to host materials produced through the program. The program is part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
