Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Passionate Focus Art Exhibit and Reception

Thursday, April 25 - 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Passionate Focus is Second Sense’s annual benefit and art exhibit. The juried exhibit features the work of artists with vision loss.

Our jurors are arts professionals who select the pieces based on artistic merit. They review over 100 submissions and select about 40 pieces to include in the Passionate Focus exhibit.

This year’s jurors are:

  • Ellen Wallace, art consultant
  • Janet Petry: artist and curator at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art
  • Wally Bowling: architect, artist and former director of the Douglas Dawson Gallery in Chicago

Passionate Focus vividly demonstrates that vision loss doesn’t have to be an impediment to pursuing your dreams. This event helps all our guests focus on each person’s abilities rather than any disability.

To learn more about the event, visit our event website. The artwork will be posted on the site on March 1, after the jury has selected the work.

There will also be a silent auction with unique and exciting packages available for bidding online and at the event.

Passionate Focus 2024 will be at the Fairmont Hotel Millennium Park on April 25, beginning at 6:00 pm.

Tickets are available on our event website and by calling Cheryl Megurdichian at 312-236-8569 or email Cheryl.
