About the Auxiliary Board of the Art Institute of Chicago

Founded in 1973, the Auxiliary Board of the Art Institute of Chicago is the oldest and most recognized charitable board of its kind in the nation. The board comprises approximately 60 accomplished professionals who represent a broad cross section of Chicago’s civic, corporate, and philanthropic leadership. Forward-thinking, innovative, and focused, Auxiliary Board members are dedicated to the continued success and longevity of the museum.

From highlighting the distinct visions and histories that make Chicago such a vital and complex city to exploring rich traditions across the globe, the Auxiliary Board Exhibition Endowment allows the Art Institute to present exhibitions that demonstrate its identity as a mirror of our local community and a window to the wider world.

Through exhibitions such as Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, programs, resources and partnerships, the Art Institute of Chicago champions the role of art and culture in people’s lives, promotes access and equitable participation in the museum, fosters critical and creative thinking, and collaborates to strengthen the life of our city.

In October 2010, the Auxiliary Board celebrated the return of Marc Chagall’s America Windows. Dedicated to the late Mayor Richard J. Daley in 1977 at a ceremony hosted by the Auxiliary Board, the windows were removed from public display in 2005 as construction started on the Modern Wing. The opportunity was taken to clean and restore the windows to their full glory before reinstalling them in a new gallery that celebrates the legacy of public art in Chicago. In addition to hosting the unveiling of the fully restored windows, the Auxiliary Board, along with the Prince Charitable Trusts, funded the conservation efforts.

We invite you to support our commitment to exhibitions, among the Art Institute’s most enduring contributions to the city of Chicago. Through all its events and activities, the Auxiliary Board works to support the Art Institute with meaningful financial contributions, identifies and cultivates future museum leaders, and strives to engage Chicago’s many distinct communities. Amplify and cultivate your community relationships through the Auxiliary Board of the Art Institute of Chicago. If you are would like to learn more about the introduction and interview process and/or the board, please contact the Auxiliary Board office at (312) 443-3674 or [email protected].
