Event Details


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.

When and where is ArtWorks?

ArtWorks begins on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at River East Art Center in Chicago, Illinois. The exhibition will begin with a VIP reception with the artists at 5:30 PM and the main event will be open to the public from 6:30 – 11:30 PM. ArtWorks will feature an open bar, hors d’ouevres and live music. Guests will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with the artists and learn more about their work.

What is the goal of ArtWorks?

The goal of ArtWorks is to engage, empower and educate the Chicago community about the mission and impact of ADL through art. We plan to host 300 and art enthusiasts and have the goal to raise $150,000 to support ADL’s local efforts in the Chicago region. ArtWorks will celebrate ADL’s achievements as the voice of justice and fairness for all who have faced injustice, hatred or bigotry.

Who are the ArtWorks artists?

Over 30 of Chicago's emerging and award winning artists and selected artists from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel will participate in JustArt.  The work of the ArtWorks artists will present ADL’s mission and work over the last 100 years through a variety of mediums.
