The Delaware Valley Association of Phi Beta Kappa will be having its next meeting on Tuesday, May 14 featuring Susan Talbott, the Executive Director of the internationally acclaimed The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. Ms. Talbott will be accompanied by FWM’s Board President, Maja Paumgarten.
The Fabric Workshop and Museum, at 1214 Arch Street, was founded in 1977 with a visionary purpose: to stimulate experimentation among leading contemporary artists and to share the process of creating works of art with the public. Providing studio facilities, equipment, and expert technicians, FWM originally invited artists to experiment with fabric, and later with a wide range of innovative materials and media. From the outset, FWM also served as an educational center for Philadelphia’s youth. Printing apprenticeship programs provided emerging artists with technical and vocational skills, as well as new approaches to creative expression.
Please mark your calendar for Tuesday evening, May 14, with a cash bar beginning at 5:45 p.m., at The Acorn Club, 1519 Locust Street, in Center City Philadelphia. The program and dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. Your admission ticket(s) will be mailed if we receive your response by May 7.
The names of those who attend the May 14 meeting, or who contribute to our book award program regardless of attending, will be placed in a drawing, to be announced at the meeting, to receive two tickets to the Philadelphia Orchestra.
The cost of the dinner is $55 per person, which includes gratuity
