The EXPO CHICAGO/2012 Civic Committee will be led by Partner Emeritus Jack Guthman. Jack is serving as Chair alongside Honorary Chair Mayor Raham Emanuel.
EXPO CHICAGO’s Civic Committee provides outreach to local Chicago and greater Midwest business communities, acting as ambassadors for EXPO CHICAGO’s extensive programming and institutional and community partnerships. Additionally, the Civic Committee supports EXPO’s mission to bring Chicago back as a major international art destination—regionally, nationally and internationally – while building and fostering new partnerships and alliances.
The inaugural EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary / Modern Art and Design, will be presented at Navy Pier's Festival Hall from September 20-23, 2012. This four day art event will feature 100 leading international galleries and offer a curated blend of contemporary/modern art and design.
