Please join Matthew Rachman Gallery and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, as they collaborate on the return of a very special event, “For the Love of Farnsworth: A Celebration to Benefit Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House.” The second annual fundraiser will be held from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM at Matthew Rachman Gallery in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village.
The elegant evening will include libations from Chicago’s premier mixology boutique, SpritzOlogy, and craft beer from award winning Naperville brewery, Solemn Oath, as well as mouth-watering small plates and desserts from talented local chefs at Jordan’s Food of Distinction. The evening will also feature a short address by Mary Lu Seidel, Chicago Field Director for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a brief discussion led by Guests of Honor, Chicago-based artistic duo, Luftwerk.
The gallery will exhibit a specially-curated collection of artwork (at which ten percent of all art sales throughout the duration of the exhibition will directly benefit the Farnsworth House), silent auction items, and musical performances by original composer Owen Clayton Condon.
Tickets are $95.00 per individual, or $175.00 per couple, and can be purchased at www.farnsworthhouse.org/for-the-love-of-farnsworth. Proceeds from tickets sales directly benefit the Farnsworth House.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to learn more about the Farnsworth House, or to make a donation in your absence, please visit farnsworthhouse.org or savingplaces.org
Specially-curated artwork will hang in the gallery February 16 – 19, 2017.
