Seeing Things: The Director's View

Art Institute President and Director James Cuno takes a close look at selected works in the collection as he launches the Art Institute's new season, Seeing Things, presented with Art Institute partners the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and the Poetry Foundation.

From September 2010–June 2011 they've set out to take a closer look at the history, meaning, and importance of things through art, music, dance, and words, inviting us all to join them as they aim to see things for what they—and we—truly are.  


Recorded Thursday, September 23, 2010 at The Art Institute of Chicago.
