The Chicago Art Foundation has a vision (pdf): they want to expose the world to Chicago's visual artists by opening the first museum devoted solely to Chicago art. They've created a business plan that has them raising funds, building an identity, collecting art, forming archives, and they are on a track to open this museum 24 months after they finalize the acquisition of their space. Keep an eye on the CAF website for updates as they build the next great Chicago art museum.
