"Masterminds: Chess Prodigies" Opening Reception

Join us for the in-person opening reception of our newest exhibition, Masterminds: Chess Prodigies on Thursday, February 11, 2021, 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Masterminds is an exhibition that tells the stories of notable chess prodigies including Bobby Fischer, World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen and the Polgar sisters. Through photographs, videos and mementos of important chess matches and tournaments from the collection of the World Chess Hall of Fame, visitors will learn more about these talented young players as well as their later accomplishments. The exhibition will also highlight the achievements of players who took up the game later in life and still made a mark on the world of chess. 

In compliance with our safety guidelines, guests will be required to wear masks and sign up for a timed, 30-minute tour of all three floors, including a viewing of our popular exhibition, Keith Haring: Radiant Gambit, led by our curators.

The reception is free and open to the public with complimentary valet available. Please register for your timed tour here.

A virtual tour of the exhibitions will also be viewable on our YouTube and Facebook channels.
