Weinberg/Newton Gallery originally debuted in 2006 as David Weinberg Collection, a contemporary art gallery in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.
In 2011, the exhibition space shifted to an artist-run studio featuring Weinberg’s own photography work and changed its name to David Weinberg Photography.
In 2016, the space became Weinberg/Newton Gallery, having taken on a new mission focused on social justice issues. The change reflected and acknowledged the influence of attorney and philanthropist Jerry Newton on the gallery’s work, particularly in building relationships with partner non-profit organizations. Newton actively has been involved with organizations including the ACLU of Illinois, Human Rights Watch, and Personal PAC for more than four decades. Together, David Weinberg and Jerry Newton have guided the Weinberg/Newton Family Foundation since 2009.
