Faith Ringgold is hosting our 21st Annual Garden Party at the Rio II Rooftop Galleries and Terraces in Manhattan and will present the Distinguished Scholars Lifetime Achievement Award to CUNY Distinguished Professor, Dr. Lisa Farrington. Prof. Farrington is the leading expert in African-American Art History, Feminist Art History and Haitian Art History.
In addition to the conversation with Prof. Farrington we have presentations to One-of-a-Kind-Kids elected between 2009 to present, as well as presentations of our new James A. Porter College Scholarship.
Join us for an afternoon of art, conversation, and refreshments. The mission of the Anyone Can Fly Foundation is to expand the art establishment's canon to include artists of the African Diaspora and to introduce the Great Masters of African American Art and their art traditions to children and adult audiences.
Your donation for the afternoon is $100.00 per person. The Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization supported by people devoted to the visual arts.
