Plans for Museum Dedicated to American Freedoms
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.- In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the McCormick Tribune Foundation, plans have been announced to build a public museum dedicated to America’s freedoms, with a special emphasis on First Amendment rights. The museum will serve to encourage generations to understand, value and protect these freedoms.

The museum, yet to be officially named, will feature 10,000 square feet of exhibition space and will be located in the historic Tribune Tower on Michigan Avenue.

Inspired by Col. Robert R. McCormick’s strong belief in the responsibility of citizens to participate in and contribute to our democratic way of life, the public showcase will invite visitors to take pride in the nation’s heritage of democracy, while promoting a sense of civic responsibility.

"We are excited about the opportunity to further the legacy of Colonel McCormick with this inspiring and educational museum," said Dave Anderson, director of operations for the McCormick Museum Foundation. "It is our hope that the museum will play a vital role in teaching people the importance of First Amendment freedoms and the obligation we have to uphold and support those freedoms."

The McCormick Tribune Foundation recently created the McCormick Museum Foundation (MMF) to design, build and operate the museum, along with several well-known exhibition and facility designers. Gallagher and Associates, renowned for creative and organizational talents, will design the exhibition space. VOA Associates Inc. will apply facility programming, master planning, architecture and interior design to the museum.

In conjunction with the announcement of the museum, the MMF has created several public museum-related competitions.
