LINCOLN PARK — DePaul Art Museum's "Climate of Uncertainty" exhibit is in its final week before the museum closes to make way for a special exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the Armory Show.
"Climate of Uncertainty" features provocative environmental photography depicting the effects of climate change alongside working exhibits such as a carbon dioxide-measuring robot and an algae fuel tower.
The exhibit, which encompasses both floors of the museum, 935 W. Fullerton Ave., will be on display through Sunday before the museum closes for a week to install "For and Against Modern Art: The Armory Show + 100."
The new exhibit will honor the legendary Armory Show, which introduced America to modern art when it was held in New York City's 69th Regiment Armory in 1913. The show was the first large exhibition of modern art in America and went on to be displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago and The Copley Society in Boston.
DePaul's exhibit will "reunite some of the prints, drawing and painting from the exhibition that introduced America to avant-garde European art," said Louise Lincoln, the museum's director and curator of the exhibition in a statement.
Among the featured artists in the exhibition are Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Edvard Munch, Odilon Redon, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
The museum is open free to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays. and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends.
