Recently Ellen & Richard Sandor, long-time supporters of The Intuit Center for Outsider Art co-chaired Intuit's twentieth anniversary benefit gala, The 20/20 Visionary Ball. The ticketed event occupied the ballroom at the Westin on North Michigan Ave helped Intuit raise over $100,000. According to the invitation, guests were encouraged to wear their funkiest eyewear and we can definitely see that come through in the photos.

In addition to celebrating Intuit’s accomplishments, the gala honored artist and teacher James Zanzi, Professor Emeritus, SAIC, who has continued to increase public awareness, knowledge and appreciation of independent artists.
