This annual juried exhibit showcases the best calligraphic art from Chicago Calligraphy Collective members. The CCC draws members from local talent and members across the globe. Any calligraphic art accepted in the the exhibit is eligible to receive the coveted Newberry Purchase Prize. Each year, through generous donations from the CCC and a private donor, the Newberry Library is able to purchase one-of-a-kind, original artwork to be included in its prestigious calligraphic collection. The John M. Wing Foundation on the History of Printing is one of the world's leading collections in its field and is housed at The Newberry Library.
