PALM BEACH – Kathryn and Leo A. Vecellio hosted a reception recently aboard their motor yacht, the Lady Kathryn III, to honor
Hope Alswang, the Director and Chief Executive Officer of the
Norton Museum of Art.

The reception was held to celebrate the success of the Museum’s 2010-2011 season of exhibitions and events, the first one under the direction of Ms. Alswang, who was appointed to the position in 2010.

            “We were delighted to honor the efforts of Ms. Alswang, the Museum’s Board of Trustees and its fine staff as they mark another milestone season of exceptional exhibitions and events for our community,” noted Mrs. Vecellio, a member of the Museum’s Board of Trustees.  “Ms. Alswang has brought a new vitality and enthusiastic perspective to the Museum, and we are certain she will continue to lead its efforts in a most successful and creative direction.”

            Over 60 guests attended the sunset reception, including:  Tom Quick, Heidi and John Niblack, Jean and Fred Sharf,  Elizabeth and Jeff Bateman, Annie and Michael Falk, Christina and Bill Aylward, Patt and Bill Sned, Henry Joyce, Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein, Bruce Beal, Dr Angela Culveyhouse and Helen Abel.

            Before joining the Norton Museum in April 2010, Ms. Alswang was President and Chief Executive Officer of The Museum of Art at the highly-regarded Rhode Island School of Design. Prior to that, she was executive director of the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont and director of the New York State Council on the Arts Museum Program.

            The Norton Museum has been recognized internationally for its traveling exhibitions and expansive collections of over 7,000 works, including European Impressionists and Modern Masters, American art from 1900 to the present, an extensive collection of works on paper and a rich body of sculpture. The Chinese collection offers superb examples of carved jades and bronze vessels and the contemporary collection embraces art from the 1960’s on. Today’s most revered and history’s most innovative photographers are featured in the photography collection. Annually, the Norton Museum presents engaging and exciting collection and exhibition related talks, concerts, and programs for children and adults.
