Noble Art Tours is pleased to announce its partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, September 16 this year through January 7, 2018.

April 2017 Inside Guide

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

APRIL  2017

Noble Art Tours invites you to explore Chicago as an outdoor museum during the “Year of Public Art” through guided, curated experiences.

With spring arriving in Chicago, Noble Art Tours invites you to join us as we step outdoors and explore the breadth and depth of public art in the Chicago loop and neighborhoods. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) designated 2017 the “Year of Public Art” with new projects and exhibitions that build on the already robust permanent collection distributed throughout the city.
 
Discover little known but significant historic and contemporary gems tucked into the most surprising spaces while also engaging, if you choose, with iconic works such as the Picasso and The Bean (aka Cloud Gate). Chicago is internationally renowned for the quantity and importance of its public art. Allow Noble Art Tours to reveal why.
 
As always, tours are tailored to your interests and requirements, from walking tours to expanded tours with transportation provided, at your pace and on your schedule. To reserve a private tour for individuals or groups, please please contact Cynthia.
