We’ve got some very exciting news to share! Not only will ACE have a new location in 2015, but the show will be moving to a new weekend – Friday, September 25th through Sunday, September 27th. Please be sure to save the date and help us celebrate the 31st Anniversary of the American Craft Exposition in its new home, the world-renowned Chicago Botanic Garden! Our fabulous Benefit Preview Party will kick off the festivities on Thursday evening, September 24th.
The 2015 ACE Co-chairs, Debbie Kerr and Liz Dauten, are very excited about the chosen venue and are looking forward to planning ACE’s 2015 event. “The Chicago Botanic Garden is a perfect place for ACE,” says Kerr. “During the weekend, guests will have an opportunity to stroll the magnificent grounds while enjoying the work of the country’s finest and most respected artists,” adds Dauten. “It’s going to be quite spectacular.”
The staff of the Chicago Botanic Garden is equally enthusiastic. “We are looking forward to hosting this nationally recognized and celebrated event, its artists and devoted patrons at the Chicago Botanic Garden,” says Harriet Resnick, Vice President, Visitor Experience and Business Development. “The Auxiliary of NorthShore’s purpose to promote health and wellness is perfectly aligned with the Garden’s mission to cultivate the power of plants to sustain and enrich life. We are confident that our venue will set the stage for a fabulous ACE.”
Presented by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore), this juried exposition and sale of fine craft features one-of-a-kind pieces, luxury collections and uniquely creative artwork from the country’s finest craftspeople. Now celebrating its 31st year, this highly anticipated event gives guests the opportunity to appreciate and purchase stunning artwork while supporting pioneering ovarian cancer research at NorthShore…all in a beautiful new setting!
