Chicago’s Families is a multi-sited, collaborative exhibition created by members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance that explores what it means to be family in Chicago. With six anchor site exhibitions exploring different themes, it features cross-cultural educational programming and events, and an online exhibition through the CCA Shared Digital Archive. The Swedish American Museum is hosting one of the anchor exhibition sites, which it is co-curating with the Japanese American Service Committee, the National Public Housing Museum, and the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Center for Gender and Sexuality. This exhibition explores the concepts of home and belonging through historical and contemporary voices of Chicagoans.
