No one went hungry at Chicago Artists Coalition (CAC)’s Starving Artist beneft. Guests were treated to decadent bites while immersed in a uniquely designed space at Venue One. This year’s silent auction, hosted online by Paddle 8, allowed guests the chance to own work from more than 20 noted Chicago artists. All proceeds from the event support CAC, providing educational resources, exhibitions, opportunities and networks for Chicago artists of all disciplines.

The event began with a special VIP reception at CAC, where guests mixed and mingled while enjoying delicious bites by Lula Café chef/owner Jason Hammel. Hosted by Christie’s, a live auction featuring a brand-new piece of work by famed Chicago artist Hebru Brantley kicked-off the evening as well as a “special” performance by Environmental Encroachment.

The party continued at Venue One, where the art of food came to life as some of the city’s top chefs craft innovative dishes that showcased their unique artistic culinary talents. Featured chefs include Evan Behmer of Mercat a la Planxa, Michael Coté of Balena, Shawn Doolin of Venue One, Nathan Sears of The Radler and a noted chef from Piccolo Sogno. In addition, Pork and Mindy’s provided BBQ sliders, a food truck from Eastman Egg made an appearance and Garrett’s Popcorn, Mariano’s, Scone City and Vosges Chocolates all supplied sweet treats for dessert. The incredible food was complimented by a uniquely designed space from artist Tori Terzakis as well as immersive artistic experience created by Leonard Suryajaya.
