Fusion of Art + Food + Wine


  • Marcus Lemonis will handpick each exhibit for the rotating art gallery that will be hung in MLG Chicago.
  • The Marcus Collection will rotate annually with new themes and complimenting food and beverages, with the net proceeds of each new exhibit benefiting a local charity.
  • The Arts of Life has been personally selected by Marcus to help people with and without disabilities create an artistic culture to realize their full potential.
  • Opened in 2000, The Arts of Life was the first program in Chicago to provide employment in the arts for adults with intellectual disabilities.
  • The studio serves as both an alternative day program and creative epicenter for its artists.
  • Funded partly by the Department of Human Services, The Arts of Life also greatly depends on fundraising efforts and grants to sustain its program.
