CHICAGO — The Art Institute of Chicago plans to enter the market as soon as Wednesday to sell a mix of taxable new-money and tax-exempt refunding bonds that will reduce the museum’s floating-rate risks and allow it to accelerate its pension funding plans.

The museum will sell $40 million of taxable bonds and an additional $61 million of tax-exempt debt. The tax-exempt piece will be issued through the Illinois Finance Authority.
