The 32nd Annual American Craft Exposition (ACE)

THE 2016 AMERICAN CRAFT EXPOSITION

Chicago Botanic Garden
1000 Lake Cook Rd
Glencoe, Illinois

Showcasing the country’s finest handmade jewelry and art objects from world-renowned craftspeople, this prestigious juried exposition and sale of fine craft includes one-of-a-kind pieces, luxury collections, and uniquely creative artwork. More than 140 juried artists from across the United States will gather on Chicago’s magnificent North Shore to exhibit jewelry, ceramics, metal, fashion wearables, glass, furniture, fiber decorative, leather, mixed media, basketry, paper and wood crafts. Funds raised at this year’s ACE will support NorthShore’s innovative pharmacogenomics research. Funds raised will allow researchers to analyze and predict how patients react to medications based on genetic variants. This information can be used to customize medical treatments, ensuring that patients receive the right drug in the right dose the first time, minimizing the side effects and adverse reactions to drugs for patients.
