The Man, The Maker, The Legend!

The Furni­ture Society and the Center for Art in Wood invite you to partic­i­pate in a cele­bra­tion of Garry — the man, the maker, the legend. We thought the best way to pay tribute to him and his larger-than-life-sized legacy is by coming together and sharing thoughts and memo­ries, not only of his ground­break­ing work and prolific career, but also his inim­itable char­ac­ter, wit, and spirit. The evening will be hosted by Monica Hampton, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of the Furni­ture Society, and Glenn Adamson, noted curator, histo­rian, and writer.

You too are welcome to share your stories (please keep your thoughts timed within 2 minutes so that all who wish to partic­i­pate are able to do so!).

Join us on Thurs­day, April 28 from 6:30 – 8 pm EDT as we pay tribute to Garry — his life, his work, and to raise a toast in his honor.

If you have images you would like to be included in the slideshow, please email those to Hayami Arakawa NO LATER THAN midnight, Friday, April 22 EDThayami.​arakawa@​gmail.​com

This event is free and open to all who want to cele­brate Garry’s life and legacy!
