The Sixth photography benefit gala, attended by 280, people was a resounding success. With the assistance of our supports, we raised over a half million dollars for the Photography Gala Fund, which is the larges single source of acquisitions funding for photography at the Art Institute of Chicago.
If you would like to still donate to this fund, you may mail a check care of the photography department to the Art Institute of Chicago at 111 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60603. You support ensures that we will continue to be able to add key works from across photography’s history to the collection in years to come. Thank you.
