Family Design Day at CHM

Saturday, November 10

Inspired by our newest exhibition Modern by Design: Chicago Streamlines America, join us for a day of creative expression that invites families to design, make, and share throughout the Museum. Explore the exhibition, go on an artifact hunt, and create your own mini Zephyr train. Test out and learn more about design principles at our maker cart.

This event is presented as part of Near North Design Day, an all-ages day of discovery and activities that draw on iconic Chicago design objects and interiors. Be sure to visit our partner sites, including the DePaul Art Museum, Edgar Miller Legacy, and Newberry Library.

Near North Design Day is presented as part of Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
