Photo Flash: First Look at The Art Institute of Chicago's Snap Gala
This year's Snap Gala, benefiting the Photography Gala Fund-the largest single source of acquisitions support for photography at the Art Institute-was a record-breaking success. On Saturday, October 19, guests were awed by the elegant, glowing centerpieces featuring vintage slides, as well as a curtain of slides hanging from the second floor balcony made by INDO (http://theindoprojects.com/). Attendees posed in sets of classic photographs from the Art Institute's acclaimed permanent collection during cocktail hour, as well as photo booths during dessert. Alexander Gilkes-Chief Auctioneer, Phillips and Founder, Paddle 8-ran a lively and theatrical auction that capped off the evening.
