Partygoers created gadgets out of household items and taste-tested liquid nitrogen ice cream at the Museum of Science and Industry’s (5700 S. Lake Shore) 34th annual gala Jan. 28. The event — emceed by actor and producer Chris Spencer and chaired by Cheryl Harris, senior vice president of Allstate Insurance — included a look at the MSI’s Juried Art Exhibition, which highlights the work of African-American artists. The gala raised $400,000 for Black Creativity programming and events, which honor the culture and contributions of African-Americans and promote youth participation in the sciences.
