President, Santa Barbara Museum of Art Woman’s Board

“The Santa Barbara Museum of Art Woman’s Board has a legacy of creating original, enjoyable, stand out fundraising events which keep our supporters coming back year after year. Art of the Table is no different. It will entertain and inspire our guests with a showcase of local designers’ imagination, providing an extraordinary evening while raising funds for the museum’s exhibitions and educational programs. I’m so grateful to our designers and event committee who are generously donating their time and talent to wow us on this special night.”

“The Art of the Table is yet another of the Women’s Board creative ventures that will lend fun, beauty, and great spirit to the Museum,” said Larry J. Feinberg, Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director and Chief Executive Officer. “It is also another of their projects that will benefit the Museum financially and help support critical programs – such as the recent major photography exhibition ‘Brought to Light: Revelatory Photographs in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Collection’ and SBMA’s after-school education programs in partnership with the Girls Inc. organization. For over 65 years now, the Women’s Board has been among the Museum’s greatest champions and during the last decade they have been crucial supporters of every major exhibition that the Museum has mounted. I have no doubt that Art of the Table will be another of their great successes.”
