Join Jefferson Godard, Emerge Acquisition Chair, and the MCA Curators as they lead Emerge members through the Emerge acquisition process. With the mission of bringing a new artist’s first work to the MCA Collection, the Emerge acquisition process will begin with candid discussions about the MCA’s priorities in collecting and the guiding principles that have made its collection strong. This will be the kick-off program for the annual Emerge acquisition. The process promises to be an exciting one and includes presentations and discussions of the artworks that will be considered for the MCA’s collection and their artists. RSVP to Monica Wojtyna at 312.397.3831 or by email.
