The Women’s Board of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invites you to attend Vernissage, the opening night benefit of EXPO CHICAGO at Festival Hall, Navy Pier. The MCA is proud to participate in the 10th year of the exposition, which presents artwork from more than 135 leading galleries from around the world.

Proceeds from Vernissage raise significant funds in support of the MCA’s learning department’s mission, whose programs offer compelling opportunities to explore, challenge, discuss, and reflect on the MCA’s holdings, as well as the world of contemporary art and culture.
