Along with our classic Original Plain Cheesecake, Eli’s is providing an array of desserts, including Vegan Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake, Salted Caramel Pretzel Bars, and more.

The MCA hosts Vernissage, the opening night preview of EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, at Festival Hall at Navy Pier. This extraordinary benefit, organized by the MCA Women’s Board, is the city’s most highly anticipated event of the year. Entering its fourth edition this year, EXPO CHICAGO presents artworks from 140 leading galleries, and represents 16 countries and 47 cities from around the world, including EXPOSURE—a section that affords younger galleries the opportunity to participate in a major international art fair. The exposition provides critical opportunities for curators, collectors, and art patrons to survey the best in innovative and emerging programs.

Proceeds from Vernissage raise significant funds in support of the mission of the MCA Education Department, whose programs offer compelling opportunities to explore, challenge, discuss, and reflect on the MCA’s holdings and the larger world of contemporary art and culture.
