Dear attendees, 

We are thrilled you will be joining us on Thursday, April 30 at 5:30 p.m. for our online Benefactors’ Event. 

Below you will find: 
  • Instructions on how to login for the event
  • Information on the Bank of America Art Conservation Project
  • And a fun cocktail you may want to have on hand for our digital “cheers.” 

If you are in the mood, please show off your best bootleggers garb on Zoom! Suspenders, double breasted suits, and feather boas are encouraged. I’ll be working on tracking down a fedora or a panama hat up here in West Jefferson.  

I look forward to seeing you all online Thursday evening!

The Bank of America Art Conservation Project provides grant funding to nonprofit cultural institutions throughout the world to conserve historically or culturally significant works of art that are in danger of deterioration. Since the Art Conservation Project began in 2010, Bank of America has provided grants for more than 170 projects in 33 countries on six continents to conserve paintings, sculptures, and archaeological and architectural pieces that are critically important to cultural heritage and the history of art. Support from Bank of America is enabling the conservation of Reynolda’s Thomas Hart Benton.

We can’t pass up the opportunity to indulge in a little moonshine while we discuss Bootleggers ! Our friends at Broad Branch were kind enough to create a couple of cocktails that can be made with ingredients you may have at home. If you need to replenish your stash, pay them a visit at 756 N. Trade Street in Winston-Salem. As a bonus, they are kindly giving away two free 40ml bottles of hand sanitizer with your purchase while supplies last!
