The Evening Associates of the The Art Institute of Chicago hosted a beautiful evening in the Pritzker Garden celebrating the summer exhibition, "Manet and Modern Beauty". Guests enjoyed a live set by the Chicago’s own Astro Samurai and beats by DJ Sadie Woods. They sipped on summer Sazerac cocktails. White Claw, Brooklyn Brewery and Amendment Brewery also provided refreshing drinks for our stylish guests to stay cool throughout the evening. The darling, Crowning Event, created custom flower crowns and accessories to complete their look. Local artists, The Clementine Studio and Kelly Maryanski, created gorgeous watercolor illustrations of our guests. We'd like to also thank Max Mara, Revel Decor and Lollapalooza for helping make #GardenPartyChi so special.

EA Board of Directors Tour of B_Line Murals

The Evening Associates' Board of Directors explored the B_Line Murals with a private tour lead by Chief Curator and Managing Director, Levar Hoard.

The B_Line is a mile-long street art corridor under a historic train line in Chicago’s Fulton Market district. It's an accessible immersive art experience that began as a quest to resurrect one of Chicago’s most rare displays of public art.

The EA's board of directors are drawn to the murals because it's a museum of street art creating a community for artists. Learn more about the murals here; http://blinechicago.com/

Big thanks to John Reid and Jacqueline Hoover for the photos!

Guests experienced the artistic achievements of the ancient world during After Dark, "Of Gods and Glamour" hosted by the Evening Associates. Attendees enjoyed late night access to the newly reinstalled Mary and Michael Jaharis Galleries of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Art.

In addition to exploring the galleries guests were invited to interact with art in the form of coloring. The Evening Associates partnered with MobiColor to bring creativity, culture, and, relevancy to After Dark through coloring. MobiColor used images of artwork featured in the Ancient and Byzantine galleries and interpreted them into live coloring murals. After engaging with art, guests headed to the Modern Wing to dance under Stoptime Live’s visual projections and experience a live performance by Chicago’s own, Tatiana Hazel and dj set by Gramaphone Records, Michael Serafini.
