New designs, new challenges, and dynamic seasonal events await visitors of The Back 9. The second half of the exhibit follows this summer’s Front 9 of the artist-designed miniature golf course. This fully playable course by local and national artists is a reimagining of the wildly popular 1988 exhibition Par Excellence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. A public call for proposals for area artists, designers, and architects attracted diverse artists who designed holes of varying difficulty, including the museum’s Teen Art Council. The custom-built playable miniature golf course is split into two exhibits: The Front 9 (Summer) and The Back 9 (Fall). Designed to use the museum’s galleries with COVID protocols, the two 9-hole courses are comprised of a surprisingly varied collection of themes and forms, promising an unusual twist on a familiar pastime.
