'A Journey' Art Exhibition at The Peninsula Chicago


Experience 'A Journey' at The Peninsula Chicago: the contemporary art exhibition curated by Dara Pizzuti, featuring highlights from Pizzuti Collection. For nearly a decade, The Peninsula Chicago has collaborated with art partners to curate contemporary art exhibits that are showcased throughout the hotel’s public space and on display for several months through mid-June 2024, commencing during the city’s annual EXPO CHICAGO art event on April 12, 2024. This exhibit represents the most ambitious and diverse collection of art works presented at The Peninsula Chicago to date. 


This exhibition features 30 exceptional works which reflect the Pizzuti's journey in art collecting. The title also reflects The Peninsula’s journey since 1928 of establishing 12 outstanding hotels in three continents.


As curator, Dara Pizzuti’s intent was to provide a glimpse into her parents’ approach to collecting art. “Their approach took them to many faraway places and expanded their interest in understanding different cultures through art. When acquiring a piece from a living artist, my father always strove to get to know the artist, and in some cases their family. He is passionate about the artist’s perspective and experiences. I would describe him as a lifelong student who is both engaging and passionate about sharing what he has learned,” explains curator Dara Pizzuti. 


The works on display through mid-June are by 27 leading artists from 13 countries and include paintings, sculpture and mixed media pieces. Artists in this exhibit are from USA, England, France, Germany, Serbia, Syria, Iraq, Israel, India, China, South Africa, Cuba and Brazil.
