There are reports that the Merchandise Mart has put an end to Art Chicago.

The fair started back in 1980, when it was originally called the Chicago International Art Exposition. It grew to become a world-renowned art fair.

In recent years, Art Chicago has seen increased competition from other fairs. It had been scheduled to run in late April.
