The Florsheim Mansion for the Arts has long been an important art destination in Chicago. The home is named after Lillian Florsheim, the shoe empire heiress who was one of the finest sculptors and gala host's of her day. The home was previously owned by the Director of Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art. In recent years the home has been used as an Artist in Residency destination for some of the world's most prestigious artists.
