As many of you know this Friday will be busy.

If the regular handful of events and openings was not enough, then you will be excited to add the SAIC MFA show (of which I was involved as a guess curator) and then round out your night with a little bit of Ox-Bow benefiting. Many of the Bad at Sports family have participated in Ox-Bow and I am very fortunate to be teaching there this summer. If you have to pick one or the other here is a hint: the MFA show will be there Saturday, the opportunity to be in Bill Padnos’s home and collection will not be.

Here is their info.


After more than a decade of inviting you to the Chicago Winter Benefit, we are taking a break in 2013 to introduce: The Ox-Bow Drive Series. An amazing roster of Ox-Bow friends will open their homes to host small events in order to raise funds for Ox-Bow.

You are invited to the 2nd party in our series at the Ukrainian Village home of Bill Padnos, former Ox-Bow Managing Director, a long-time supporter and, collector of Ox-Bow art.
