In this video we discuss Wrightwood 659, Chicago’s newest museum, hidden on a quiet block in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Wrightwood 659 opened last year and features rotating exhibitions created to provoke intelligent thought about societal issues.
The museum is housed in a converted apartment building from the 1920s. The brick outer shell was kept while the inside was marvellously renovated by world-renowned architect Tadao Ando.
I review this unique space that follows the grand tradition of incredible Chicago museums.
