After calling the South Loop home for 16 years, the National Veterans Art Museum has to move out.
The space at 18th and Indiana, owned by the Chicago Park District, will become a much-needed neighborhood recreation center now that the museum's lease is up.
"Our lease was scheduled to up at the end of April this year, but we needed a little bit more time to identify a new home and so the Park District was kind enough to extend it to the end of August of this year," Levi Moore, executive director, said.
For more background on the museum take a look at this video:
It sounds like the split was amicable, but the article doesn't really say what will become of the "much-needed" space. Anyone have any updates?
Anyway, it would be nice if the museum could stay in the neighborhood. We will see.
