Art Among Friends 2018

As you may know, I serve on the DC Area Alumni Committee of the Sidwell Friends School here in DC. Yesterday was our inaugural art event, Art Among Friends, where we showcased alumni visual artists, including yours truly! In spite of torrential downpours, we had a wonderful time and a hearty turnout. Not only did we have awesome art and artists, we also had Bettina Stern's amazing Chaia plant-based tacos for lunch. (Bettina is a member of the Sidwell community, too.) Thank you to everyone who came out. Join us next year! It was an all around great time.
