With the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s (MoCP) annual benefit, DARKROOM, quickly approaching; it’s time to grab your tickets to a fun-filled night that supports the arts and MoCP. Guests of the event will have a night full of drinks, hors d’oeuvres, stunning photography and even an auction. All proceeds of the event will go to supporting MoCP exhibitions, public programs and community engagement initiatives.
Mensbook committee member and member of this year's fundraising committee for MoCP, Frank Ishman, is particularly excited about this year's event. “I’m so looking forward to the gala and fundraiser for MoCP and very honored to be on the fundraising and event committee,” explains Ishman. “I felt very honored last year to have one of my fine art pieces considered for auction for the 2019 event. They do such amazing work in showing established and up-and-coming fine art photography. I truly feel as if there is an understanding in the process behind the creation of great exhibits, not only for the gallery but in the life of the artist and the advancement of their career.”
This year’s event will be held at Columbia College Chicago’s new student center and will be honoring artist Kenneth Josephson with the Silver Camera Award for his contributions in the field of photography. Get your tickets and more information HERE.
