A costume party celebrating both darkness and light, Illumination is an evening of spectacular performance, exquisite cuisine, and installations from over 96 light artists. Now in its fourth year, this year’s Illumination promises to be a bigger, brighter, spookier experience than ever. You’re in safe hands and guaranteed a spectacular night: Illumination is a joint creation from the Culinary Director of Chicago Gourmet, the Creative Director of Chicago Ideas Week, and legendary experiential theater director Frank Maugeri.
Begin with an exclusive curated dinner experience or join the organizers for the main event: the costume party promises an otherworldly playground with light art, a kaleidoscopic array of performance, installations, DJs, and laser shows. Best of all, donations raised benefit research for Retinal Vasculopathy with Cerebral Leukodystrophy (RVCL); a very rare, genetic condition that affects the central nervous system. October 26th.
