It was all about art, socializing, and friends at June 24th’s HLAA Night at the Nelson. More than 10 members and their families walked the halls of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. They got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with an exclusive tour of Monet’s famous “Water Lillies” paintings in the museum’s beautiful Bloch Building. The three panels of Monet’s famous work haven’t been displayed together in the United States in more than 30 years.
Other highlights were a “Heavens” photography exhibit, which included breathtaking images of the sky, moon, stars, and the cosmos. Afterward, most of the group ventured to Winstead’s for coffee, food, and conversation. A fun time by all!
HLAA members Stephanie Hanson and Lucy Crabtree show off artist Roxy Paine’s abstract sculptures in the Nelson’s main lobby.
