Common Thread: 2022 Spring Benefit

Friday, Apr 29, 2022

1957 Sheridan Rd.
Highland Park, IL 60035

Our annual spring benefit is first and foremost a showcase to celebrate our 62+ years as the premier home of arts and culture on the North Shore. It also has the added purpose of raising potentially 10% of our organization’s income for the year. And as you may already know: it is always a lot of fun and the best place to be on a Friday night in Highland Park!

This year’s event, Common Thread, will take place on Friday, April 29th, and is a return to our tradition of live celebrations. Along with a fashion show, passed food, cocktails, and the return of DJ Tess handling the music, it will include the opening of our cutting edge exhibit, Fiber-Fashion-Feminism, featuring fiber artists Maria Pinto, Laura Morrison, Ginny Sykes, Nirmal Raja, Yana Schnitzler, Katrin Schnabl, Marty Ornish, Nneka Kai and Jennifer Markowitz.


Join us and celebrity guest host  Monica Pedersen as we honor the Highland Park Community Foundation for their exemplary stewardship of resources and community leadership during the COVID pandemic, and toast their remarkable 30th year anniversary of service.


Your support, as a sponsor or a ticket buyer, will allow us to continue offering high-level programming in our galleries, classes, and events.
