Check out all the great limited edition works created specifically for the Renaissance Society.  Founded in 1915 as a cultural program to the University of Chicago, the Society’s nearly 100 years of history include a 1916 lecture by Paul Shorey on The Service of Art, to An Exhibition of Modern Paintings in 1918, to the current Francis Alÿs solo exhibition.

The designer wares were made in collaboration with numerous artists, including Art21’s Arturo Herrera, Jenny Holzer, Kerry James Marshall (his dinner plates are pictured above), Jessica Stockholder, and Kara Walker.
