Gahlberg Gallery at the College of DuPage
The last time we ran this category, the University of Chicago’s Renaissance Society took top prize, and their all-star international program continues to charm Chicago. But in the past few years, the Gahlberg Gallery at the College of DuPage—just head directly west for about an hour—under the tutelage of curator Barbara Wiesen, has been cultivating local voices with verve. A recent retrospective by local legend Michael Piazza and provocative installations by emerging artists rounded out the program this year.
