The Taubman Museum of Art’s 8th annual Women’s Luncheon takes place Nov. 12. This year, the fund raising event will honor acclaimed (and in the past, controversial) Lexington photographer Sally Mann with the Ann Fralin Award.
Time Magazine wrote about Mann in 2001: “Few photographers of any time or place have matched Sally Mann’s steadiness of simple eyesight, her serene technical brilliance and the clearly communicated eloquence she derives from her subjects, human and otherwise—subjects observed with an ardor that is all but indistinguishable from love.”
Taubman Museum volunteer Pat Bratcher will receive the Art Venturer Award. The guest speaker is Nina Simon, executive director of the Museum of Art & History at the McPherson Center in Santa Cruz, CA. Simon is the author of The Participatory Museum.
Seats for the posh luncheon are $100, for a table $1200. Click here for more information.
