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.

Galleries will re-open to the public on September 19, 2014. Beginning on Tuesday, July 8, the Block Museum will reopen for Wangechi Mutu’s animated video, The End of eating Everything, running on-loop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays in the Alsdorf Gallery. The museum’s main galleries will re-open to the public on September 19.

The Block Spot, the museum’s Wi-Fi lounge, will remain open to the public Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., throughout the summer.
