Mrs. Jackson, a member of The Museum’s Board of Advisors, introduced Ms. Sultan to a very warm, reception from the guests. Sultan spoke of the Museum’s plans to break ground for its new $25,000,000 museum designed by Swiss architects Herzog & De Mueron which actually took place days later with Governor David Paterson wielding a spade to scoop up the first shovelful.
Recently appointed Chairman of the Board of Evidence, A Dance Company, Mrs. Jackson is prominent in arts circles and the crowd was filled with noted artists and arts patrons including Ginni Booth, Alvin & Rosa Hudgins, Noel Hankin Sr., Vice President of Multicultural Relations at Moet Hennessy USA, Anna & Arnold Eagle, author Cheryl Riley, Dr. Ancy Verdier, Darrell Gay, Stephen & Immeke Wald, artist Frank Wemberly and his wife Juanita, E.J. Smith, Lynn Williams, Christopher French, painter Victor Matthews, Hamptons.com’s Vanessa Leggard, and Alexandra Stanton, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Parrish Art Museum with fellow Trustee William H. Wright II.Source and photos: ALCHIMIA Marketing & Public Relations
