In recognition of their leadership support of the Newberry Library, President’s Fellows and Newberry Associates at the Humanists level and above are invited to an exclusive tour of Chicago Avant-Garde: Five Women Ahead of Their Time.
Chicago Avant-Garde tells the story of five women who took radical risks in their lives and in their art: artist Gertrude Abercrombie, poet Gwendolyn Brooks, choreographers Katherine Dunham and Ruth Page, and dealer-curator Katharine Kuh. Inspired and challenged by Chicago, they helped transform the city into a hub of avant-garde experimentation.
Space is limited. Attendees will be expected to follow the Newberry’s regulations and guidelines regarding COVID-19. An update will be sent to attendees prior to their tour.
