High art! Celebrities! Clinking glasses! EXPO CHICAGO/2014’s Vernissage on September 18 was the bash of the year, with The Conservation Center in the middle of all the action. Joining forces with The Chicago Network (TCN)—an organization of Chicago's most distinguished professional women—we hosted a special champagne toast that attracted more than 50 guests. The Center’s Pop-Up Conservation Lab served as a wonderful location for the occasion. Architect Jeanne Gang (TCN member 2006) remarked on the concept behind her layout of EXPO CHICAGO, and CEO Heather Becker (TCN member 2004) outlined The Center’s commitment in the art world. A special cheers to Kate Bensen, TCN’s President and CEO, for this wonderful celebration!
