PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Well, I’m back.  One of the things I hope to do this year is replace myself.  The Women’s College Club offers so much beyond our efforts to help young women with their first- year college expenses.  I wish you, the membership, would get more involved in leading the club.  I know that there are women out there who could really enjoy our board’s efforts in guiding us into the next 100 years.  We need the input of new ideas, perspectives, and experiences.  Three of us drove through monsoon conditions to the Philadelphia Fabric Workshop and Museum to see an exhibit of wonderful cedar cabins and textiles by Ursula von Rydingsvarg, who created the carving in front of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment on Holden Street. One of our members came up with this trip.  I know there are more suggestions out there.  Please come forward and make our efforts a richer experience.

“GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE:  LOOKING AHEAD”

Gary Garrido Schneider, Executive Director, will bring us up-to-date on the future plans for the Grounds for Sculpture.  After celebrating its 25thanniversary last year, the 420-acre park, garden, and museum is looking ahead while continuing to support artists in making new work, providing meaningful encounters with art and nature and be a community resource that reflects our dynamic world.  He will share with us the exciting news about what is on the horizon for this evolving non-profit arts organization.

Join us for this exciting visual arts presentation by Gary Schneider, who is an artist, educator, and museum administrator.  Gary received a B.F.A. from the Parsons School of Design and is a graduate of both the Teacher Institute in Museum Education (TIME) program at the Art Institute in Chicago, as well as the prestigious Getty Museum Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate School.

Following the program Gary will join us for fellowship and refreshments.
