Art Works: Justice, Advocacy and Art
Wed. Oct. 2 - River East Art Center, Chicago

Mural by Jason Messinger

ArtWorks is the first annual art exhibition, fundraiser and silent auction highlighting the mission and impact of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).  ADL was founded in 1913 to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. ArtWorks features unique artwork created by today’s leading and emerging artists. The artwork featured at the event will combine both donated art as well as artwork that is reflective of one or more aspects of ADL’s mission.  All of the artwork will be part of a silent and live auction at the event.
