Art Impacts 40th Anniversary Gala: Sunday May 6, 2018

Join us for a spectacular event in the Woman’s Club of Evanston elegant ballroom where we will be honoring gallerist William Lieberman, owner of the Zolla/Lieberman Gallery, and the
host of our first benefit 40 years ago. William has been a major force in promoting Chicago artists, emphasizing a 50/50 balance between women and men. We will also be recognizing Art
Encounter’s Co-founder and Artistic Director, Joanna Pinsky for four decades of dedication to developing programs that connect people of all ages and backgrounds together through visual art. Enjoy wine and food at our Chefs’ Tables prepared by outstanding chefs from Evanston and Chicago restaurants, a unique art and music installation by Camille Iemmolo, and an interactive art activity. An event highlight will be a silent auction of art by some of Chicago’s most prominent artists. Best of all, you will be helping Art Encounter continue to bring the joy of art to Chicago and Evanston public schools, assisted living residences and community centers, as well as to the public.
