TASCHEN "shop within a shop" inside the Art Institute of Chicago
"In a city with a traditionally strong and vibrant art scene such as Chicago, I could not think of a better place than the Art Institute to start a new kind of partnership. I am happy and excited to take our relationship to the next level." Benedikt Taschen
TASCHEN Proudly Announces Partnership with The Art Institute of Chicago
TASCHEN is pleased to announce a new landmark arrangement with The Art Institute of Chicago (AIC), the country's second-largest art museum. The AIC has recently opened a "shop within a shop" devoted exclusively to TASCHEN titles in the AIC Museum Store located at 111 South Michigan Avenue. The selection of TASCHEN books will vary from TASCHEN's art, architecture, photography, and design titles, and will occupy approximately 25% of the floor and wall space. The Art Institute is the first museum in the United States to enter into such a historic agreement with TASCHEN.
David Thurm, Chief Operating Officer of the Art Institute of Chicago says of the partnership, "Books from TASCHEN have been some of the best selling books in our Museum Shop. It certainly made sense for us to pursue an arrangement that allowed us to prominently feature their titles and make clearly visible to customers the place where they can find the extremely popular TASCHEN titles within our Shop. We are very excited to be the first American museum to partner with TASCHEN in this innovative way, and we look forward to TASCHEN flourishing even further in our retail spaces."
