Shakeup at Spertus Museuem

It's been an interesting couple of years for the Jewish Spertus Museum at 618 S. Michigan. It's been around forever, but only 4 years ago it went through a massive and glitzy change to their headquarters for $52 million. The building is simply beautiful and a great addition to the historic Michigan Avenue street wall.

However, the museum has run into some problems. Today Crain's Chicago Business talks about some of the issues and their new CEO, Hal Lewis. There has been some controversies surrounding exhibits and most recently they cut some of the hours for their staff.

Interesting read if you're interested in the museum.
