For more than 30 years, One Inspired Evening has included a juried art auction featuring art contributed by artists who believe in our work.
As a part of this year's auction, we asked the contributing artists to share a little bit about themselves and their work to celebrate their hard work and contributions to the event.
Many thanks to artists Elisa Boughner, Michael Everson, Roberto Ferreyra, Tammy Haman, Liz Martino, Valerie McCune, Mary Kay McMahon, Mark Nelson, Karen Parisian, Jane Sloss, Jenny Steinman Heyden, John Terdich, Betsy van Die, and Chai Wolfman for taking the time to share!
If you are not able to attend the event in person, you can still participate in our silent auction and art auction virtually! Items for the art and silent auction will be published closer to the event right here on this site, and all those registered for the event will be able to participate from anywhere via their phone or computer!

In an atmosphere of dignity and respect, Inspiration Corporation connects people and creates opportunity through access to social services, job training, housing, and food.
Each year, Inspiration Corporation works with hundreds of resilient Chicagoans facing a wide variety of barriers imposed by systems of oppression, such as homelessness, hunger, and social isolation. In order to help individuals and families overcome these barriers, we provide housing, meals, job training, scholarships, and homeless engagement services.
At Inspiration Kitchens, our social enterprise restaurant and job training facility in East Garfield Park, we provide training in the culinary arts, one of few industries open to people with multiple barriers. Learn more and hear directly from staff, participants, and graduates in our new video:
