About

The Women’s Board of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invites you to attend Vernissage, the opening night benefit of EXPO CHICAGO at Festival Hall, Navy Pier. The MCA is proud to participate in the seventh year of the exposition, which presents artwork from 135 leading galleries around the world.

Proceeds from Vernissage raise significant funds in support of the mission of the MCA’s 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.
