In 1946, Callahan was hired by the famed Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy to teach photography at Chicago's Institute of Design, and later he helped to establish a photography program at the Rhode Island School of Design, teaching there until he retired in 1977. In 1976, Callahan was honored with a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, and the following year became the first photographer to represent the United States in the Venice Biennale.
