The Peninsula Chicago is hosting an exciting art exhibition from noted
contemporary collector, Beth Rudin DeWoody’s art collection, curated by Laura
Dvorkin in collaboration with Circa 1881. Titled Whoville, this exhibition
coincides with the annual EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of
Contemporary & Modern Art, thst took place at Navy Pier. The installation,
featuring a number of Chicago artists, debuted on September 9, 2016 and will be
displayed throughout the hotel’s lobby through October 23, 2016, as a part of
public art project. Whoville is the latest project from The Peninsula Hotels’
ongoing partnership with Circa 1881 to present rotating art exhibitions of
world-class contemporary art for the hotels’ public spaces. Circa 1881 produces
art exhibitions and programming in collaboration with noted collectors or from
artworks on loan from private collections it has under management.
Beth Rudin DeWoody’s sizable collection is known for including emerging,
established and sometimes overlooked artists and has been featured at the
Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach and the Parrish Museum in
Southampton, among other institutions. Beyond avidly collecting works,
DeWoody curates exhibitions and supports several art institutions.
