2016 VISIONARY WOMAN AWARDS

Over 250 people attended Moore College of Art & Design’s 14th annual Visionary Woman Awards Gala on Thursday, October 13 at the College, located at 20th Street and The Parkway.  The event raised $393,000 to support scholarships for Moore’s undergraduate students who are members of the Visionary Woman Honors Scholars program.   This year’s honorees were mural artist Meg Saligman and President of Spelman College, Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, whose award was accepted by her son Sekou Campbell as she was unable to attend.   The evening, which began with a cocktail reception in The Galleries at Moore, also included dinner, an awards ceremony, a short film by Glenn Holsten about the honorees and scholars, and a dessert reception.  Moore is the first and only all-women’s visual arts college in the U. S. for undergraduates.  A big special thanks to all of our sponsors and the individuals who made this event possible.
