for the

50th Anniversary Gala of the Opening of  the

Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery

The 50th Anniversary Gala of the 1966 opening of the Bertha V. B. Lederer Gallery, (then known as the Brodie Fine Arts Gallery), will celebrate this imortant milestone with an exhibit of artwork curated from the permanent collection by almunus Lauren Slezak '15.  The gallery installation will be designed by Yuki Kawae, Designer, '12 with a Masters in Interior Architecture fro Rhode Island School of Design . Corrine Smith, Esq., '12 with a certificate in Intellectual Property: Art and Museum from DePaul University College of Law. These are just three of the extraordinary student interns and gallery coordinators that have worked with the Director in the past 9 years.

The rationale for the Gala is to raise funds to support the preservation and conservation needs of the permanent collection and collections management. In addition these funds will also be use to purchase new glass doors for the Lederer Gallery that will open the space and provide greater access for students, facuty and staff. Events during the Gala include, tours of the storage spaces, a Happy Hour, and a multi course Dinner, music and table magicians.
