The Alice Austen

Annual Gala & Benefit 2018

Dear Friends of Alice,

Wow, what a special event we shared together for our annual Alice Austen Benefit! This was one of the most touching Coming Out Days that I have ever experienced and it was made so joyful by spending it with you.
History was made in the rooms of the National Arts Club as we shared our personal stories, celebrated Alice and our incredible honorees, JEB (Joan E. Biren) and Eric Marcus, who recorded a live oral history, an experience which we will all treasure.
I thank you all for your presence, joy and support of our mission here for the interpretation of the life and work of Alice Austen and recognition of her loving 53 relationship with Gertrude Tate.
Let’s keep this momentum going! I can’t wait to see you all again here at the Alice Austen House!

With Pride,

Executive Director, Alice Austen House
