The Modern Wing The Art Institute of Chicago 111 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, Illinois
The Auxiliary Board celebrated its 35th Anniversary Party in the Modern Wing space, six months before its opening to the public. Party-goers enjoyed cocktails and hors d’ouvres in the uninstalled Contemporary Art galleries on the second floor of the Modern Wing before moving to the beautiful Griffin Court for dinner. The evening ended with a dance party to the music of guest DJ Samantha Ronson. Set against the breathtaking lights of the Chicago skyline, it was an event to remember!
