Public Art Collection
In its role as owner of the McCormick Place, MPEA is proud to provide the city of Chicago with Illinois' largest public art collection. MPEA believes that public buildings should be more than just functional and made these acquisitions to inspire visitors as they pass through the hallways of its facilities.
All of the paintings and sculptures that you will see at McCormick Place enhance the buildings' architecture and complement the views of the city and Lake Michigan. Next time you're in the South Building or West Building of McCormick Place, take a good look around and you'll discover some hidden gems.
