Art Collection

Art Collection

Collecting art has been a tradition at the Union League Club since 1886. Today, the art collection is a vital part of the Club's identity and a significant part of Chicago's art history. The art collection is one of the oldest and most important private collections of American art in the Midwest, and it has one of the best collections of Illinois art.

The majority of the art collection is on view throughout the Club. There are nearly 800 works in the Club's collection which represent more than 150 years of art making in America. The collection features a range of art movements, styles, and subjects, from traditional to contemporary art, and it includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, watercolors, prints, photographs, and decorative arts.
