Calendar of Events

Kelsey Associates Robert and Pearson Macek enjoy the October 1 opening of “A Victorian’s Passion: David Roberts 1796–1864.” The Maceks donated one of the 12 Roberts lithographs in the exhibition, a beautiful rendering of the Monastery of St. Catherine at Mount Sinai, the Mount of Moses. Their gift commemorates the late George H. Forsyth, Jr., who directed a study of this site in the 1950s and 1960s.
