A leading figure in Chicago as artist, curator and educator in the 1960s and 1970s, Don Baum is credited as a significant leader in Chicago's rejuvenation as an arts center. He advocated institutional support for local artists, and having been appointed to choose America's entry to the 1973 San Paulo Biennale, he organized a landmark exhibition "Made in Chicago".
