Skowhegan Medals

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Award for Philanthropy 

THANK YOU to everyone who supported Skowhegan through the 2013 Awards Dinner on Tuesday night. It was a spectacular evening and we were thrilled to spend it with over 400 friends, in particular our amazing Dinner Chairs David Beitzel (A' 82) & Darren Walker and Donald Moffett (F '04) & Robert Gober (F '94); our Trustees & Governors; Chris Ofili (F '10) and Gemini GEL; and the many, many alumni in attendance.  

Jane Hammond (F '92, '05), Joel Wachs, Edgar Arceneaux (A '99), and Carrie Mae Weems (F '00) helped us honor Andy Warhol, John Outterbridge, and the Guerrilla Girls, artists who epitomize the courageous creative spirit that embodies Skowhegan. Exceptional performances by Jesus Benavente (A '12) and Ander Mikalson (A '12) brought this energy to life.  We are also proud to announce that we raised over $530,000! This summer, our exciting new class will feel the benefit of this support for artists. On their behalf, we extend our gratitude.  

Thank you! 
Katie Sonnenborn and Sarah Workneh Co-Directors
