Game Changers

Thursday, January 18

Without the people who broke creative barriers, explored farther, thought differently, and looked harder many museums might not exist. Today share someone who “changed the game” and the world through their work—share about an artist, a scientist, a biologist, or someone else that you’ve learned during a trip to the museum OR share someone that might be featured in a museum someday! Chicago’s museums will be doing the same thing.
