Last night in San Francisco Standing Ovation productions put on a huge party and fundraiser for The Mint Project.
Click here to see a lot of familiar Bay Area museum faces who are working on the Mint Project -- many of whom were in attendance at last night's event, including Nina Simon, Debbie Frieden, WMA's own Susan Spero and Ed Prohaska and, of course, Erik Christoffersen, Director and Master of Ceremonies.
Gypsy McFelter, Development, The Mint Project, James G. Leventhal, Judah L. Magnes Museum, Berkeley, CA, Susan Spero, JFKU Museum Studies and advisor to the Mint Project, Elida Zelaya, Executive Director, WMA and Ed Prohaska, Monterey Bay Aquarium and advisor to the Mint Project.
Also in attendance from the museum world were Kelly Brisbois and Kevin Consey, formerly of BAM/PFA now leading the life of an international scholar, adjunct professor in Curatorial Practice at CCA and nature activist. Lots of other familiar friends were there, including Leah Garchik and her husband Jerry, but we are just focused on the Museum folks here.
This is a truly awesome project in scope scale and implication. The whole event felt very San Francisco. To quote one of the evening's honorees Paul Kanter of the Jefferson Starship, San Francisco is "49 sq miles surrounded by reality."
Jefferson Starship wrapped up the show
it was a great event -- and our first big chance to show off the Mint and all of its potential.
We also just launched our new website for the museum project, so there will be additional information on our programs and exhibit plans coming soon... send me an note at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be on our mailing list!
Looks like fun! Am interested to hear more - I can't tell from the website what stage they are in, in terms of developing the program. Beginning stages?
