This year members were able to mingle and look at the student artwork on the walls. You can see a few pieces in the background of the photos below. Aren't we fortunate to have one of the best art and design schools right here in our fair city? RCAD is an outstanding asset to the cultural and educational fabric of our area, largely due to the exceptional vision of RCAD president, Dr. Larry Thompson.
During the short program, Stacey Corley, RCLA board president, announced to the crowd that the Library Association had just presented Larry with a check for $400,000 as part of their $2 million pledge for a new library. The Library Association has given millions of dollars to the school AND it is done with a staff of one and the rest are the best volunteers in the world!
If you are not already a member, you should consider it. With your membership, you get first dibs on those hard to get Town Hall series tickets and you are invited to the art lecture series, which is always fascinating. Plus you get to be part of the family of an exceptional college with uber talented students who are changing the art world. How fabulous is that?
