    The Distinguished Service Award is an honor conferred at PBKACA’s annual meeting continuously since the 1980s. The recipient is so recognized for actions conducted over an extended period of time, typically in the context of a chosen profession/career, that are in keeping with the highest traditions of Phi Beta Kappa.  


    The Phi Beta Kappa Association of the Chicago Area is pleased to announce that the recipient of our 2017 Distinguished Service Award will be Elizabeth Glassman, the president and chief executive officer of the Terra Foundation for American Art. Ms. Glassman is a leading advocate for the study and presentation of American art in Chicago and across the globe. Since joining the Terra Foundation in 2001, Ms. Glassman has led the foundation in developing and launching its expanded grant program, which has awarded more than $80 million for nearly 800 exhibitions and scholarly programs in 30 countries. She also oversees the foundation’s renowned collection of American art, as well as partnership projects, including the first American art exhibitions to take place at the Musée du Louvre in Paris and in the People’s Republic of China. The foundation also provides valuable support for K–12 education and public programs in Chicago.


    Please help us honor Ms. Glassman and Chicago Public School Scholarship recipients for our Annual Dinner. If you cannot be in attendance, please consider making a donation to our Scholarship Fund in Ms. Glassman’s honor.
