The Chicago Calligraphy Collective was founded in 1976 to promote the study, practice, and appreciation of calligraphy in all its historical and present-day applications. This annual juried exhibition of members’ work includes handmade artists’ books and broadsides alongside three-dimensional works executed in a variety of media and styles. The annual Purchase Award enables the Newberry to acquire one exhibited piece to strengthen the calligraphy holdings of its distinguished John M. Wing Foundation for the History of Printing.

Calligraphy demonstrations from 11:30 am to 1 pm
