Institutions receiving money include Chicago's Art Institute, Shedd Aquarium and Lincoln Park Zoo. Washington Park Botanical Garden in Springfield, the Rockford Art Museum, Quincy Art Center and the Peoria Zoo also will receive money. This year's $15 million follows $15 million given to institutions in 2010.
