Popping up in the ground floor gallery space of the Expo 72 building, the Design Museum of Chicago has an exhibit showcasing items and artifacts on loan from theaters across the city. The exhibit looks into how design is used to bring the stage to life, and how different theaters across the city take new approaches to set and costume design. Expo 72 is a three story brick-and-glass building whose diagonal glass walls draw visitors into the building, which is frequently used for exhibits.
