2017 VISIONARY WOMAN AWARDS
Over 250 people attended Moore College of Art & Design’s 15th annual Visionary Woman Awards Gala on Wednesday, October 11, at the College, located at 20th Street and The Parkway. The event raised $418,000 to support scholarships for Moore’s undergraduate students who are members of the Visionary Woman Honors Scholars program. This year’s honorees were photographer Andrea Baldeck and sculptor Ursula von Rydingsvard. The evening, which began with a cocktail reception in The Galleries at Moore, also included dinner, an awards ceremony, this short film produced by Fresh Fly 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.
