Two of Chicago's oldest arts organizations, the Chicago Artists Coalition and the Lawyers for the Creative Arts, are hosting a special evening of art, food, and cocktails in the West Loop on Wednesday, August 18. To start, dinner guests can visit Mars Gallery and tour the studio of artist Peter Mars "the leader of Chicago's Pop Movement for the past 20 years." Celebrities have collected his works, and his works also often feature the world's celebrities.
From the gallery, you can take a trolley between 5:15 and 6:45 to Province Restaurant - a West Loop restaurant that's been pairing with the the art world for a little while now. From 6:30-9pm enjoy unlimited wine and 'artist-inspired' hors d'oeuvres created by Province chef Randy Zwieban. The restaurant is bright and hip, and a great change of pace for a Wednesday night. Even better? The tickets are only $30 ($20 if you're a member of CAC.) Also, 20% of proceeds from the sale of Peter Mars' work will benefit the Chicago Artists Coalition's membership programs (ie: tax deductible!)
To purchase tickets, please email Alyson Koblas or call the CAC office: 773 772 2385 by August 16.
