Each year, Munro Campagna Artist Representatives choose one Chicago-area cultural organization to celebrate with a special-edition calendar. This year, Munro Campagna teamed up with us to distill the Newberry into calendar form! Twelve artists were each assigned a month, and they took inspiration from our programs, services, spaces, and collections to create a set of illustrations you’ll be proud to hang on your wall and measure time by.
Join us for this calendar release party. The reception will begin at 5:30, with complimentary wine and appetizers. During the program, Newberry Curator Jill Gage will give a short lecture, using examples from the library’s collection to illustrate the history of calendar-making. All guests will receive a copy of the 2017 Munro Campagna-Newberry calendar.
This event is free to attend, but please register to reserve your spot!
