Two years ago the Art Institute of Chicago had 3,976 artworks on display. Now they have 4,715 on display. The Art Institute has a great website that shows their entire collection. You can even search for which artworks are on display or not. By simply going to the “advanced search” section and clicking the “on display” field, it will give you all the artworks currently being shown.
I love The Art Institute of Chicago catalog.
The Art Institute has redesigned their online catalog. The “on view” only items can bee seen at: https://www.artic.edu/collection?is_on_view=1 They currently have 5,266 items on view.
That is a lot of artwork to be on display in one museum.
I’m impressed that the number went up 551 items in the past four years.
