According to an invitation from the Art Center, the gala typically raises $200,000, which helps fund its community art programs. The gala will feature screen printing, a live auction and a musical performance. This year, honorees at the dinner are Chicago photographer Barbara Crane and philanthropists Cheryl and Eric McKissack.
