DePaul University Art Museum

Location:Chicago, Illinois
Client: DePaul University
 
Project description: Antunovich Associates collaborated with DePaul University on the design of a LEED Silver Level certified Museum/Art Gallery, that is located at 935 Fullerton Avenue in Chicago, Illinois, as identified in the Lincoln Park 2009-2019 Campus Master Plan. Following construction of the renovated Fullerton CTA Station, the DePaul University Art Museum is the first of many upgrades to the surrounding area. In addition to the building, the area will benefit from newly planned walkways and landscaping, which improves pedestrian traffic around the CTA station, as well as connects the University students, visitors, and neighbors to the main campus safely and efficiently.
 
The generous square footage of the building provides expansive exhibition space, as well as options for more intimate collections. Placing DePaul University’s museum facilities to a nexus of pedestrian traffic encourages cultural exchange between the University and its community. The building’s exterior is to reflect the architecture of the nearby Seminary Avenue townhomes and continue the aesthetic tradition of the neighborhood’s unique character.
