VIP Patron Reception
The MCA hosts Vernissage, the opening night preview of EXPO CHICAGO at Festival Hall, Navy Pier. This extraordinary benefit, organized by the MCA Women’s Board, is the city’s most anticipated art event of the year.
Entering its fifth edition, EXPO CHICAGO presents artwork from 145 leading galleries around the world, including EXPOSURE—a section that affords younger galleries the opportunity to participate in a major international art fair. The exposition provides critical opportunities for curators, collectors, and art patrons to survey the best in innovative and emerging programs.
Proceeds from Vernissage raise significant funds for the MCA Education Department, whose programs offer compelling opportunities to explore, challenge, discuss, and reflect on the MCA’s holdings and the larger world of contemporary art and culture.
