Join us for the Fine Arts Tour at Assets 2017!

To my Fine Art colleagues,

Irene Szylinger, ISA AM
It’s always exciting when ISA holds Assets in a location known for its world-class art! It’s even better when we have the opportunity to learn from first-rate speakers about that art. On the Fine Arts Tour taking place on Friday, March 31 from 8:30am to 5:00pm, we will go behind the scenes at three excellent venues in Chicago: Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, the Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Art Institute of Chicago. If you haven’t signed up already, please do so now!

On our first stop at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Zack Wirsum, Director of their Fine Art Department, will speak about the current state of the art market with reference to recent auction results. There will be examples from their Modern and Contemporary Art (American and European) and Fine Prints collections on exhibit. Auction house valuations will also be discussed.

Our next stop will be the Museum of Contemporary Photography to hear two important lectures. One talk will be led by an experienced curator who will guide us through different processes of photography such as the daguerreotype, ambrotype and rayogram, using examples from the permanent collection. Cynthia Noble, a specialist in custom tours and an adjunct lecturer at the Art Institute of Chicago, will guide our group on a second talk focused on the acclaimed fashion photographer Vivian Sassen’s exhibition UMBRA currently on display at the museum as well as the recent rise of fashion photography as an art form.

Her work emphasizes the play of light and shadow and often approaches abstraction.

Finally, we will make our way to the Art Institute of Chicago. Even if you’ve seen the art and artifacts at the Art Institute already, the collections are so vast, there is always something new and undiscovered. Here, we will be treated to two private tours from Cynthia Noble and her team.


One presentation will tour the highlights of the fabulous permanent collection, which is home to over 300,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years and considered one of the best in the world.

A second talk at the Art Institute will explore the Edlis/Neeson collection, comprised of 42 well-known post-war works of art recently donated to the Art Institute. The Edlis/Neeson collection is the largest gift of art ever given to the museum and features works by artists such as Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns.

After the talks, we will have time to discover other remarkable works at the Art Institute at our leisure.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you on this memorable tour in Chicago.
