The inaugural Art at the Rubenstein Forum program features selections from the collection of University of Chicago Trustee Kenneth C. Griffin,
one of the world’s most acclaimed private art collections.

Griffin is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Citadel, a leading investment firm that manages capital for investors around the world, including retirement programs, endowments, foundations, and sovereign wealth funds.

“Experiencing the arts opens our minds to new ideas and perspectives. The paintings are as distinct and wide-ranging as the discussions the Forum is designed to inspire. I am pleased to contribute to this inaugural installation and to support the University’s deep commitment to free expression and debate.”
