Prints and Drawings Department

The Society for Contemporary Art invites you to the annual Patron Luncheon, which recognizes the special commitment and generosity of Patron members and gives our Board an opportunity to thank you for your extraordinary support during the past year. This year we will be returning to the Prints and Drawings Department for a behind-the-scenes look at their distinguished collection and state-of-the-art facilities. Mark Pascale, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, will lead us into storage and pull various works on paper for our perusal, ranging from historical objects related to contemporary art to a selection of the most exciting, recent contemporary acquisitions. In addition to viewing seldom-displayed prints and drawings, we will also have the rare privilege of visiting the conservation labs. Following our program we will enjoy lunch at The Cliff Dwellers Club, located across the street from the Art Institute. It will be a great opportunity to continue our conversation with Mark Pascale and enjoy a fabulous view of Millennium Park and the new Frank Gehry Band Shell. We hope you will join us for this exciting event.
