Annual Dinner Party: Art & Science

Annual Dinner Party at The Morton Arboretum

The Morton Arboretum Invites You to Attend the 2014 Dinner Party

Spend a spring evening celebrating The Morton Arboretum's mission, while enjoying beautiful scenery, live music, dinner, exciting raffle prizes, and a jazzy after party! 

The 2014 Dinner Party theme, Art & Science, speaks to the Arboretum's mission of encouraging the planting and protecting of trees for a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world. Our grounds and collections are beautiful, artful, and breathtaking, but they are only made possible by the many researchers, scientists, groundskeepers, and horticulturists who use science daily to make our facilities a beautiful place to enjoy.
