Expo Chicago’s annual Northern Trust Purchase Prize, which allows a museum in the Windy City to acquire a work from the annual fair, will go to the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University.

The work of art, which will be announced on September 16 at Expo, will be selected by Lisa Graziose Corrin, Block’s director; Christine O. Robb, the chair of the museum’s board; and Kathleen Bickford Berzock, its associate director of curatorial affairs. The piece of art will be chosen from the fair’s Exposure section, which features galleries eight years or younger. 

Expo Chicago opens on September 13 at the city’s Navy Pier, and will include more than 135 exhibitors.
