New Lion Inspired Items

No lion: the holidays are coming and you can give and give back at the same time. Gift any of our exclusive items featuring our favorite feline and support the arts.  Our iconic lion sculptures by Edward Kemeys (American, 1843-1907) have guarded the museum's entrance since it opened for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. See some suggestions to help you make merry and support the museum's mission as we roar towards the holiday season.

The purrfect rain protection any time of year is the latest addition to our lion collection. Our Lion Umbrella and matching sleeve feature a repeat pattern of our prowling pair.

Wear your support for the Art Institute of Chicago in style. Teal lions alight on a chic shape that is both elegant and efficient. Meow!
