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. 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. Our Collections staff will be bringing out specimens, artifacts, field notes, and historic photographs just for the ArtWalk!
