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 and acknowledged the influence of attorney and philanthropist Jerry Newton on the gallery’s work, particularly in building relationships with partner non-profit organizations.
The Weinberg/Newton Family Foundation underwrites the efforts of the gallery and has been led jointly by David Weinberg and Jerry Newton since 2009.
Weinberg/Newton Gallery is located throughout the first floor at 688 N Milwaukee Avenue.
The expansion enables us to better realize our vision to be a resource to artists, community organizers, and nonprofit organizations. We can offer a platform to causes that can benefit from communicating their message to a broader public, while also raising funds to support artists and further the organizations’ mission.
