Presenting sponsor, Northern Trust, held a summer kick-off soiree for some 200 art aficionados on July 23 at John Hancock Center in Chicago as a prelude to the third annual Expo Chicago, an art fair offering works from more than 140 leading international galleries in 43 cities, and representing 17 countries.
For this third installment, Expo also renewed their partnership with Artspace.com to enable buyers throughout the world to preview and participate in the exposition through an online platform. Artspace hopes this year to reach more than 200,000 individuals comprised of collectors, museum trustees, directors and curators from around the world. Expo Chicago takes place on Sept. 18-21 at Navy Pier. See expochicago.com.
