Ox-Bow Winter Benefit Celebrate Ox-Bow with a Friday Night Party!

It Came from the Lagoon Friday, February 24, 2012
6:30-11:30 p.m.


This year, a little bit of summer warmth is invading the cold Chicago winter with an art auction and themed dance party--It Came from the Lagoon!

The Winter Benefit begins with hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and specialty cocktails by City Provisions, and is followed by silent and live auctions of fantastic artwork by select friends, alumni, and faculty. The night ends with a dance party—Ox-Bow style! Themed Friday night parties complete with costumes and dancing have been a campus tradition for over 100 years.

Bid on over 75 pieces of original artwork donated by Ox-Bow alumni, faculty, and friends, including Mike Andrews, Isak Applin, Carl Baratta, Phyllis Bramson, James Brandess, Elijah Burgher, Israel Davis, Stephanie Brooks, Hank Feeley, Corin Hewitt, Susan Kraut, Marion Kryczka, Jessica Labatte, Ellen Lanyon, Thomas Lawson, Jim Lutes, Peter Mars, Rachel Niffenegger, Tom Palazzolo, Rebecca Ringquist, Seymour Rosofsky, E.W. Ross, Betsy Rupprecht, Oli Watt, Andrew Winship, Karl Wirsum, and many others.
