Summer 2018 – Art Encounter had an amazing summer leading innovative programming and immersing ourselves in the Evanston Community!
– All of us at Art Encounter had the pleasure of honoring Joanna Pinsky for her 40 years of inspired leadership and William Lieberman’s incredible contribution to the Chicago art world on May 6, 2018 at the Woman’s Club of Evanston. Together we raised over $60,000! Gala proceeds will be put toward Art Encounter’s ever growing community engagement and outreach programs.
