The 22 Anyone Can Fly Foundation 
Virtual Garden Party is
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2020
From 2 PM – 3:30 PM EST


Wear your jaunty hat or a crazy mask to the 22nd Annual Anyone Can Fly Garden Party. This year we are taking the party on-line and you all know why. 2020 has been difficult in so many ways but our garden party promises to be filled with positivity. 

 

At this on-line soirée we will honor Dr. Dawn Brooks-DeCosta, Principal of the Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School in Harlem with a new award, the Lois Mailou Jones Art Education Award. Dr. Dawn DeCosta will be interviewed by Dr. Lisa Farrington, associate dean of the Division of Fine Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences at Howard University. Get to know Dr Dawn and we hear about the story of  Dawn’s journey from artist/ art teacher to groundbreaking school principal opening the African-American art canon to the children of Harlem.

 

We cannot forget our kids! The 2020 One-of-a-Kind Kid is Fatoumata Konate. We will show you her winning artwork along with more One of a Kind Kids pictures and their thoughts on the Covid-19 Quarantine.


Details on how and where to log are still to come.
