Jane Addams Hull House Museum To Open Arts Education Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO -- A new exhibit is opening at Chicago's Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.

"Unfinished Business: Arts Education" opens Tuesday at the museum on the campus of the University of Illinois-Chicago. Museum officials say the community-curated exhibit shows the different reasons why arts educations are necessary. It offers interactive art-making stations, interviews with Chicago artists and the history of Hull House arts education reformers.

Visitors will be able to learn how to weave on floor-to-ceiling looms or make prints of postcards.

The exhibit will run for about a year.

Jane Addams was the first American woman to receive a Nobel Peace Prize. She founded Hull House in 1889 and the museum serves as a memorial to her.
