MCA Chicago Board of Trustees Chair King Harris, Trustee James Gordon, and GCM Grosvenor CEO Michael J. Sacks invite you to attend the MCA’s second annual Corporate Art Award luncheon to celebrate the corporate community’s support of arts education in Chicago. Proceeds from the event benefit the MCA’s education programs, which encourage students to explore new art and ideas at the museum.

One of the nation’s largest institutions devoted to the works of living artists, the MCA fosters students’ creative and intellectual development. Each year, nearly 10,000 students from almost 150 schools—many located in underserved areas of Chicago—engage with contemporary art and artists through the MCA’s free education programs.
