EVENT: A Conversation with the Saars / Art Institute of Chicago / October 28, 2011


In 1994, the Art Institute established a committee comprised of African American community leaders with the mission to promote and sustain diversity within the institution. At that time, the Art Institute received a grant from the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Fund to support this initiative that continues to exist today as the Leadership Advisory Committee (LAC). 

The LAC of the Art Institute provides counsel, new perspectives, and support to the museum on all matters relating to the engagement and advancement of African Americans in the life of the institution.

The LAC believes diversity in vision, collections, exhibitions, staffing, and audience is critical to the future and well being of all American cultural institutions, and it is committed to engaging the broadest and most diverse audience in support of this vision via marketing, development, and educational programming.

Membership by invitation only
