The Smart Museum and the adjacent Cochrane-Woods Art Center were designed by the architect Edward Larrabee Barnes.

History

The Smart Museum was established in 1974 in association with the University of Chicago's Art History department. It was endowed by David A. Smart and his brother Alfred Smart, the publishers of Esquire and Coronet. In 1983, the museum became a separate unit of the university devoted to serving the entire community, including educational outreach activities in local public schools[1]. In 2000 it completed a $2 million renovation.
