By Invitation Only

Members of the Society of Collectors and other guests are cordially invited for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a talk by Celia and David Hilliard entitled “Dreams and Echoes: A Collecting Odyssey.” The Hilliards will discuss the evolution of their interests and recount some of their art-world adventures as they assembled a diverse collection of drawings and sculpture, on view at the Art Institute of Chicago October 20-February 16. They will also touch on their related collection of publications and ephemera dealing with the Art Institute and the growth of the city’s arts community. Examples of these materials, and complementary items from the Newberry’s collection, will be on display.
