The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) will host Vernissage, the opening night preview of EXPO CHICAGO at Festival Hall, Navy Pier and we invite you to join us! 

Organized by the MCA Women’s Board, this extraordinary benefit is the city’s most anticipated art event of the year. EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exhibition of Contemporary & Modern Art, boasts some of the world’s premier galleries, and continues to reinforce Chicago as a preeminent art fair and international cultural destination. This year promises to open the international fall arts season with panache, as we showcase Chicago’s unparalleled arts, cuisine, and culture.

All proceeds from Vernissage benefit the education, exhibition, and performance programs at the MCA.
