Ramon Shiva, Chicago MCMXXIV, 1924 - Photograph: Terra Museum of American ArtOn Saturday the Terra Museum of American Art opened up its final exhibit before closing in October, "Chicago Modern, 1893-1945: Pursuit of the New." The exhibit focuses on modern art by Chicago artists and is perhaps the most fitting way the Terra could say goodbye. Elizabeth Kennedy, the museum's curator, says it has been a fabulous last year for the museum and she is proud of her staff and of the museum's last show. She hopes that people's interest in Chicago modernism will extend beyond this last exhibit and says, "There should be a life for this era of Chicago modernism after the Terra has closed its doors."

"Chicago Modern" will be on view through Oct. 31 at the Terra, 664 N. Michigan. The suggested donation is $5. But don't procrastinate too much, from now through October truly is your last chance to visit the Terra!
