With hidden gems, interchangeable exhibits, and experimental art installations galore, The Exhibit House is taking up residence inside one of Chicago’s most historic structures: Water Tower Place.
Located on the fourth floor of the iconic building, the new museum officially opened up on April 1st. It’s filled to the brim with artistic endeavors that hope to inspire, as the newly minted museum is all about creating a fun self-driven series of interactive activities for museum-goers to participate in.
Water Tower Place, which houses a full mall, movie theater heater, a hotel, and condominiums, has traditionally catered to large-scale brands. With this new museum, they’re bringing a bit of individuality to the location.
The museum is all set up in a spacious open layout design featuring separate exhibits, which right now include Disco Dreamland, The Mood Room, and Secret Garden. Each has its moment to shine and will be revolving as time goes on. Creative Director and producer Emily Rose is hard at work creating a large-scale experience that’s memorable, colorful, and visually revelatory.
The space also hopes to feature up-and-coming artists in pop-up shows. Currently, they are showcasing artist Kristopher Kites inventive design.
