Scene and Heard: ALTEREGOS Opening Night at Packer Schopf Gallery, February 20

The bitter cold of February was not enough to keep the crowds away from Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago's West Loop area on a recent Friday night as more than 200 art enthusiasts turned out for the opening of ALTEREGOS, The Conservation Center’s first employee art exhibition. The scene was hip and welcoming as friends, family, guests, and artists alike sipped wine, chatted, and took in the 30 works of art created by 15 of our immensely talented staff members. As the evening progressed, the mood began shifting from an excited anticipation to a more relaxed and fun atmosphere. Besides the success of the great turnout, it was a unique experience for The Center's staff to interact, come together, and be given the chance to enjoy each other’s creativity.
