"A lot of the artists had a connection to the Chicago Art Institute. Whether they were teachers or students or award winners...many, many of them had the Art Institute touching their lives," said Nelson.
The silent auction runs until October 5th, when the art center hosts Artober Fest. Also, tomorrow night from 4:30pm-6:30pm, wine and refreshments will be served while these art pieces are on display.
Proceeds will go toward educational programs and exhibitions.
