The Art of Preservation Jubilee
November 23, 2014 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM$40
The Landmark Society invites you to its annual Jubilee Celebration, “The Art of Preservation!” This special celebratory event closes out the organization’s year with a time of reflection; highlighting new initiatives on the horizon and paving the way for future success. Come and experience evening of celebration, live entertainment, silent auction, and live Fine Arts expression at the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester, Rochester’s civic art museum.
What better place to have our annual jubilee “The Art of Preservation” than at the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester, Rochester’s civic art museum. This Italian Renaissance style building was founded in 1913 by Emily Sibley Watson, daughter of industrialist Hiram Sibley, who donated the building in memory of her architect son, James G. Averell. Given in trust to the University of Rochester, it is one of the few university-affiliated art museums in the country that also serves as community art museums. In 1986 the Gallery broke ground for a third addition which included a 12,000 square-foot entrance pavilion and enclosed, skylit sculpture garden designed by Rochester’s own architect Frank S. Grosso.
Sure to be a highlight at the event will be a special exhibition held in the Gallery Pavilion of a select number of the John Wenrich Collection that hasn’t been shown in more than 25 years! One piece will be available for purchase in the silent auction.
The evening will commence at 4:15pm – 5:00pm with an abbreviated formal meeting (free to Landmark members) then continue with fun and celebration from 5:00pm – 8:00pm with live creative expression in art, music, dancing, silent auction and special award presentations. Make sure you wear your dancing shoes and come prepared to bid on an assortment of delightful irresistible auction items!
The evening’s entertainment will feature local musicians Jon Seiger and the All-Stars, fine art artist Jacquie Germanow, and a few special guest appearances! Delicious hors d’ oeuvres, fabulous sweet treats, complimentary wine and beer sponsored by Constellation Brands Inc., and North American Breweries, and a cash bar will be provided.
