The Block offers a variety of stimulating exhibitions that explore historical and contemporary themes in art and culture. Drawing from its collections and works from other institutions and private collectors, the Museum curates its own exhibitions—often in collaboration with Northwestern University faculty—and hosts traveling exhibitions from peer institutions.
