Art Institute to Raise Admissions

March 11, 2009

With the addition of Renzo Piano’s Modern Wing to the Art Institute of Chicago soon to open, it should come as little surprise that they are announcing an admission hike.  To get into the museum it’s now going to cost $18, instead of $12.  One possible bright side is that all special exhibitions are included in the admission price now.

It is notable that $18 is still less than admission at other comparable venues nationwide.  To visit a museum in New York City is $20 for the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Museum of Modern Art.

The position of the Chicago Art Blog is that all of America’s musuems should be underwritten by the federal government and free to everyone.
