Hindman threw a chic soiree to celebrate 40 years as Chicago’s top fine art auctioneer at a private club in Chicago.
High-profile guests, including Gov. JB Pritzker, MK Pritzker and star designer Nate Berkus, danced the night away alongside a live band and enjoyed a curated photo experience led by esteemed Chicago photographer Maria Ponce.
Executive chairman Jay Krehbiel and the rest of the Hindman team honored founder and Chairman Emeritus Leslie Hindman through in-person and video stories of their memories working with the auctioneer. In a room filled with Leslie’s favorite bloom, white orchids, guests feasted on her favorite appetizer, bacon bites, and enjoyed the signature drink of the night, The Leslie, featuring chardonnay, her drink of choice.
Guests watched videos honoring founder Leslie Hindman.
