Hello and thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Evening Associates Board of Directors at the Art Institute of Chicago!
The Evening Associates Board of Directors—named the 2015 Associate Board of the Year by Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of Chicago, and top 11 Boards in Chicago by makeitbetter.com in 2017—is a group of young leaders and philanthropists who engage thousands of their fellow Chicagoans in supporting the arts and the Art Institute. The board is a diverse group of young, art-inspired professionals whose mission is to engage Chicago’s young creative explorers with the Art Institute of Chicago, drive Evening Associates membership, promote an understanding and appreciation of the arts, and fundraise for exhibitions featuring emerging artists.
Evening Associates members enjoy a full schedule of exclusive events featuring a lively mix of arts and entertainment, including behind-the-scenes tours, exhibition previews, and other unique after-hours events throughout the city. In particular, the Evening Associates Board hosts After Dark, an after-hours event that includes special tours, live music, and performances; Night Heist, an annual fundraiser themed around a major exhibition; Conversation Pieces, a special-topic focused tour series; and exciting art-related events in the museum and around the city.
If you have similar interests and inclinations, then, on behalf of the Board, we welcome your application to join us in our mission.
