We want to say thank you.

Thank you to Robert Grosvenor, Astrid Klein, B. Ingrid Olson, Jennifer Packer, and Alejandro Cesarco: incredible artists who have shared beautiful, challenging, and thought-provoking exhibitions here at the Ren in 2017.

Thank you to the artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and scholars who contributed to over 30 public programs and two new publications this year.

Thank you to all of our supporters, who make what we do possible. We’d especially like to extend our appreciation to everyone who helped make RenBen 2017 one of our most successful fundraising events ever; to all of our members across the Friend, Book Club, Chicago Committee, and Patron levels; and to our generous and committed Board members.

And finally, we want to say thank you to you—members of the Renaissance Society’s community near and far—for joining us in an incredible year of dialogue and inquiry.

We have much to celebrate at the end of a very full year and much to look forward to in 2018. Now on our website are details of upcoming exhibitions and events as well as images, videos, texts, and other resources from recent programs.

If the Renaissance Society’s work is something that you value, and you’d like to help us keep it free and open to the public, please consider becoming a member or making a donation to our Next Century Fund.

We wish you a very happy holiday season!
