RAW VENUE #1 – The Chicago Academy of Sciences was founded in 1857 to give scientists and nature aficionados a place to study and share the specimens they collected. From this simple beginning, the Academy developed a national and international reputation for its leadership in conservation, its scientific collection, and in citizen science. Dubbed the first “Museum in the West,” the Academy’s collection has expanded to 280,000 specimens with a focus on the natural history of the Midwest, and is a valuable resource for researchers. Specimens and artifacts from the collection are exhibited at the Academy’s museum, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Lincoln Park. Our Collections staff will be bringing out specimens, artifacts, field notes, and historic photographs just for the ArtWalk!
