South-Central Region Cocktails & Camaraderie

Please join fellow Attingham alumni from the South-Central region for Cocktails & Camaraderie, the next in AFA’s on-going series of Zoom regional gatherings. Alums from Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Alabama are invited to join the meeting.

The gathering will be hosted by Jennifer Klos ’12, AFA Board Member and independent curator, Mel Buchanan ’15, Curator of Decorative Arts & Design, New Orleans Museum of Art, and Jennifer Hammond ’00, Head of Education, Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, Houston. Mel Buchanan will discuss three museum collection projects that were shifted in response to pandemic closures and the need for action on racial justice. Jennifer Hammond will discuss new initiatives for unprecedented times.

The event is free to attend and open to Attingham alumni only and RSVP is required. Please note that due to the conversational nature of this gathering, we will be limiting attendance to the first 30 people who register. Please join the waitlist if you are keen to participate, and we will try our hardest to accommodate as many people as possible.

The evening will include brief introductions by participants and a short presentations by Mel Buchanan and Jennifer Hammond, followed by an opportunity for participants to briefly share thoughts on their current projects and efforts.


Please check back soon for additional regions and dates.
