With appreciation for your membership, we invite you and a guest to attend our Downtown Winter Social on January 11, 2018. This year's event will be held at Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA). Enjoy conversation with your colleagues over food and drinks at a "must visit gallery with some really unique artwork."

LUMA: The Loyola University Museum of Art is dedicated to exploring, promoting, and understanding art and artistic expression that illuminates the enduring spiritual questions of all cultures and societies. The Loyola University Museum of Art reflects the University’s Jesuit identity and is dedicated to helping people of all creeds to explore their faith and spiritual quest.

The Museum interprets and displays the University’s medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque collection, known as the Martin D’Arcy, S.J. Collection, other museum permanent collections, and rotating exhibitions.

At the event, we will be honoring our friends in the community, the  Arts & Business Council of Chicago (A&BC). A&BC is a nonprofit organization that recruits and trains skilled volunteers from Chicago's business sector to assist arts organizations in building and sustaining themselves as institutions. Each year, A&BC brings together more than 300 arts organizations and dedicated volunteers while promoting community growth and vitality through the arts.
