Barbara Bluhm-Kaul and Don Kaul are some of two of Chicago’s foremost collectors. Don is a life trustee at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, while Barbara is an Art Institute of Chicago trustee, as well as a member of the Expo Chicago art fair’s civic committee. When not involved in the Chicago art world, the couple has made a name for themselves making real-estate deals. In 2015, a condo in the city’s Streeterville neighborhood was sold for $10.375 million. It was once worth $9.3 million, and its value had risen $1 million in value because the owner, who was revealed by the Chicago Tribune to be Barbara, had flipped it by adding on a very expensive rooftop patio.
