"...Floating Museum suggested that Photography and Media offer pieces from the museum’s collection to invited “hosts” around Chicago for display inside their homes. Since the museum no longer sends original works of art out to private residences, we decided that quality copies of the works could be printed and framed instead. These copies would in turn be memorialized in their new domestic settings by photographers active in the city. Finally, the commissioned photographs could be put on display alongside the original works back in the museum’s galleries."
