Date: April 6th

Location: The Copper Tree Restaurant at Hunter Mountain, Hunter, NY

Honoree: Michel Goldberg

This year’s Beaux Arts Ball was a smashing success as always and seemed particularly lively. The addition of masks to the event’s “creative black tie” concept in 2012 really ramped up this year and everyone got into the spirit of the evening.

For Yves and me it was an extra special treat to be there to help honor his dad Michel Goldberg. Michel has made an unbelievable contribution to the arts community in Greene County, NY through his work with the GCCA as well as Cedar Grove: The Thomas Cole National Historic Site. A graduate of The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Michel has dedicated his life to the arts as a teacher, a professional graphic designer with his own design firm in NYC and now a fine artist exploring his love of drawing, print making and sculpture. Michel joined the Greene County Council on the Arts in 1992 and became a member of the board of directors in 2004 where he served as vice president until last year when he stepped down to focus on his own work as an artist.

Michel receives the 2013 Distinguished Service Award.

The evening’s festivities included a silent auction and of course, dancing in the main ballroom. This year the dance floor was packed and rockin’ all the way through to midnight! Oh wait, that’s every year. Thanks again Greene County Council on the Arts for kicking off party season in style.

Yves hits a high note!
