Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park to Host Recognition Dinner
University Park, Illinois, September 16, 2010 - Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park (NMSP) at Governors State University will honor its supporters at the park’s second annual Recognition Dinner on Friday, October 1, at GSU’s main campus in University Park.
The event begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. Elizabeth Kelley, Director of Visual Arts for the City of Chicago’s Public Arts Program, and an NMSP Board Member, will speak at the Recognition Dinner.
“The sculpture park has had a very good year and that is due, in large part, to the men and women who contribute time and resources to make the NMSP a success,” said park director and curator Geoffrey Bates. “This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the park’s board members, docents, and supporters for the work they’ve done over the past year. With their help we’ve made great strides in events, activities, and public awareness - and those efforts should be recognized.”
The Recognition Dinner is open to the public. The cost is $50 per person or $350 for a table of eight. To make reservations for the Recognition Dinner, call 708.534.4486.
The Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park is located at Governors State University’s main campus. The park is free of charge and open from dawn to dusk 365 days a year. For more information about the sculpture park, visit www.govst.edu/sculpture.
