A Taste of Art & Wine, 2011
The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will host its annual event A Taste of Art & Wine to benefit the Rogers-Green House on Friday, April 15 from 7 - 10 p.m. at the Rogers-Green House.
This year’s event will feature dinner, wine and spirits, and a silent auction which will include artwork by Mississippi artists, as well as wines and wine accessories. Music will be provided by James Ducker of Laurel and Walt Lucas of Jackson. Tickets are $45 per person with proceeds from the event going toward the renovation and preservation of the house and grounds.
Built in 1903 by Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Rogers, the Rogers-Green House was the childhood home of Lauren Eastman Rogers and was donated to the Eastman Memorial Foundation by Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner Green, Sr. The house was occupied by the Museum in 2003, and is utilized for museum offices and activities and as a rental facility for private events and social gatherings.
A Taste of Art & Wine is chaired by LRMA Guild member Janet Blouin. The event is generously supported by Silver Sponsors Trustmark Bank and Mr. and Mrs. Gary Sauls, and Bronze Sponsors Dr. And Mrs. Joe Proli. The event is also sponsored by the LRMA Guild of Docents and Volunteers.
To purchase tickets contact Liz Brumley at the Museum at 601.649.6374 or info@LRMA.org by Wednesday, April 13.
