About the Exhibition

On View through June 15
Loyola University Museum of Art
820 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago

The Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) and the Loyola University Chicago Libraries present two comprehensive exhibitions displaying the work of writer and artist Edward Gorey from February 15 to June 15, 2014. This combined exhibition will be the first major exhibition of Gorey’s work in his hometown of Chicago.

Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey and G is for Gorey—C is for Chicago: The Collection of Thomas Michalak both provide an in-depth look at this artist whose work was known for cautionary tales, dry wit, and characters costumed in the Edwardian style. Gorey’s legacy is shown through the hundreds of original drawings, works, and illustrations, and ephemera of popular culture included in the two exhibitions. Read more
