Mission & History
Weinberg/Newton Gallery is a non-commercial gallery with a mission to collaborate with nonprofit organizations and artists to educate and engage the public on social justice issues. Through artwork and programming, the gallery provides a vital space for open discourse on critical contemporary issues facing our communities. Connecting artists with social justice organizations, we work to drive change and cultivate a culture of consciousness.
In 2016, David Weinberg Photography became Weinberg/Newton Gallery. The change reflected the values of The Weinberg/Newton Gallery Family Foundation, which has been led jointly by David Weinberg and Jerry Newton since 2009.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the health of our guests and employees is our highest priority. Weinberg/Newton Gallery has implemented increased safety precautions in accordance with the CDC and city of Chicago.
Covid-19 Visitor Policies
Masks: Proper face coverings are required for all guests throughout their visit to the gallery, including the courtyard, regardless of vaccination status.
Self monitoring: All guests are expected to self-monitor for symptoms and stay home if they have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 or have had any symptoms.
Guests who do not comply with these regulations will be asked to leave the building.
Visitor Safety Precautions
Weinberg/Newton Gallery has posted informational signage to communicate pathways and reminders for distancing and precautions. Common surfaces throughout the gallery continue to be regularly sanitized. In order to reduce risk of exposure, the galleries will be limited to 10 guests per 30 minutes, and check in will be touch free.
Weinberg/Newton Gallery is accessible from sidewalk level via a ramped entryway. Two gender neutral, wheelchair-accessible restrooms are available.
