They Seek a City is the Art Institute of Chicago's first exhibition to focus on the art produced by the diverse communities that migrated to Chicago in waves during the first half of the 20th Century. Highlighting this diverse yet interwoven artistic production, They Seek a City includes paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculpture, and decorative arts.  The show features work by many alumni from the school's early years.
