Adopt a Dot!
This year one of the Art Institute’s most beloved paintings, Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884, is 125 years old. Help us celebrate by adopting one of the dots that compose this masterpiece!
When you adopt a dot, you will receive a commemorative button pin in one of six colors chosen from the painting as well as a card describing the location of your dot. In addition, your adoption will support the museum’s conservation and curatorial departments that work tirelessly to keep the museum’s entire collection dazzling and fresh for many future generations!
Adoption fees are $10 for one dot, $25 for three dots, and $50 for all six colors. Adopt one for yourself or give one to friends or family this holiday season! To adopt a dot, simply call (312) 499-4111 or fill out this form and mail it, along with payment, to the address at the bottom of the form. Forms can also be faxed to (312) 499-4175. Orders with payment must be received by December 17 to ensure proper time for delivery by December 24.
Dots can also be purchased in person at the museum if you want to be sure to have your dots in hand for stocking stuffers!
