lifetime award - bob hudson

2015 recognition to Robert Hudson.Twelve minutes.

     Those who attended this year's annual Love of Art luncheon two weeks ago got to participate in the presentation of the above mentioned award. This is the first time in the history of the Society that this award has been made.

    There are three aspects of this award which acknowledges Bob Hudson's untiring and continued giving to the Print Society.

    First, he was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation signed by Julian Zugazagoitia (Museum Director), Beth Lurey (Print Curator), and Paul Sokolof (Society President).
    Second, folks present at the luncheon were invited to stand and personally express their appreciation to Bob. 
    Third, the Society has set a sum of money aside in order for Mr. Hudson to work with Ms. Lurey to select the print of his choice to purchase for the collection. The Society will make the purchase in honor of Hudson. We invite all who know Bob and have witnessed his efforts to shepherd the health and wellness of the Society to make a contribution to this fund. If it is within your means to do such, send a check made out to the Nelson Gallery Foundation with Bob Hudson Fund on the memo line. Mail it to Lisbeth Lurey at the Nelson-Atkins (4525 Oak St, KCMO 64111). Contributions to this fund will be accepted through June.
