Please join Chicago Collections Consortium as we celebrate the accomplishments of this past year, welcome our newest members, and forecast the exciting opportunities ahead!
CCC is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for this year will be Andrew Schachman, co-director of the Floating Museum. The Floating Museum is a new collaborative arts organization that generates impermanent, site-responsive museum spaces to activate areas of cultural potential throughout various Chicago neighborhoods and within local communities. The Floating Museum engages with many local artists, historians, and residents through shared projects to present an innovative approach to museum practices.
Outside of his work with the Floating Museum, Schachman is a Studio Associate Professor in the College of Architecture at CCC member institution, the Illinois Institute of Technology. His architecture work has received numerous awards including the Distinguished Building Award from the American Institute of Architects and the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Award for Architectural Excellence in Community Design.
We look forward to hearing more about Schachman’s work and the Floating Museum on June 19th!
