Farm-to-table fundraiser benefits GSU sculpture park

The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governors State University will be in the spotlight for the “Sculpture, Wine and Dine” fundraiser Sept. 9 that will feature a farm-to-table dinner.
 
Funds from the event will help sustain the park’s community and educational programs. The sculpture park is considered one of the top 10 outdoor sculpture parks in the world. 
 
The fundraiser will have guests enjoying the art as they sit among the sculptures and enjoy the meal. The 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. dinner will be followed by an afterglow party of music, wine and desserts. The program will be hosted by Wayne Johnson of NBC5’s “Wayne’s Weekend” program. Limelight Catering will be serving the locally sourced dinner.
 
Guests will preview “Searching for Lady Day: A Portrait in Steel,” a film documentary celebrating the work of sculptor Mark di Suvero. Di Suvero’s monumental “Yes, for Lady Day,” with its distinctive railroad tank car and steel I-beam construction is a favorite among park visitors. The sculpture was a gift from philanthropist Lewis Manilow.
 
Tickets for this fundraiser are $125. The event’s sponsors include BMO Harris Bank, Bimba Manufacturing, and AT&T.For information on the event, contact Gina Ragland at 708-235-7559 or at [email protected]. For information about the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park visit www.govst.edu/sculpture.
