Founded in 1973, the Auxiliary Board of the Art Institute of Chicago is the oldest and most recognized charitable board of its kind in the nation. The board comprises approximately 60 accomplished professionals who represent a broad cross-section of Chicago’s civic, corporate, and philanthropic leadership. Forward-thinking, innovative, and focused, Auxiliary Board members are dedicated to the continued success of their mission and the longevity of the museum.
Through all its events and activities, the Auxiliary Board works not only to support the Art Institute with meaningful financial contributions, but also identifies and cultivates future museum leaders. The board also strives to enrich the lives of those in Chicago’s many distinct communities through exposure to art and art education and to usher new, young, and diverse audiences into the museum.
Membership is by invitation only.
If you are interested in learning more about the membership process and/or the board, please contact the Auxiliary Board office at (312) 443-3674 or email@example.com.
