The kickoff reception for the upcoming Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of The Art Institute of Chicago Gala “An Evening with Reese Witherspoon” was held at the Über chic Freds at Barney’s. The annual benefit which in past years has honored a celebrated and accomplished person in film, will honor Reese Witherspoon with the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Award .
The kickoff reception was an intimate gathering of Siskel Film center supporters and served as a way for the Gala co-chairs to thank them and also get everyone excited for what is sure to be a special evening with Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon and conversation led by two time Academy Award® winning director Alexander Payne.
