Join us for the Elmhurst Art Museum’s Soirée 2018, honoring Suellen Rocca, artist and curator.
Proceeds will be used to help the Elmhurst Art Museum enrich people’s lives by deepening their knowledge of art, architecture and design, increasing their understanding of the relevance of visual art in our society and sparking the development of individual creativity.
This event will be held in honor of artist and curator Suellen Rocca. In the 1960s, Rocca and five other artists formed the groundbreaking group the Hairy Who, known for their powerfully graphic images and brazen sense of humor. Rocca began teaching at Elmhurst College in 1983, and since 2006 she has been the Curator and Director of Exhibitions, overseeing the College’s internationally known collection of Chicago Imagist art.
The 2018 Soiree, presented by EAM’s Sustaining Fellows will include cocktails, a multi-course dinner, entertainment, and live and silent auctions filled with artworks by established and emerging artists as well as a fabulous selection of vacations and experiences.
10-Person Collector Table: $3,250 (price available until March 15)
