modern art council
The Modern Art Council (MAC) of SFMOMA kicked-off its 75th anniversary yesterday with its 75th Holiday Luncheon at the museum.
Formerly known as the Women’s Board of the San Francisco Museum of Art, the MAC auxiliary serves as the museum’s fundraising arm and organizer of its many educational programs.
Originally spear-headed by Evie Haas and the late Mary Keesling, the auxiliary’s dedication to modern art is evidenced in the fact that its founding in December 1934 pre-dates the museum’s opening by one month.
While we couldn’t make it to lunch, we did attend a pre-party tea hosted by former MAC President Ann Fisher.
