6.20.2017 – KyCAD’s 2017 Summer Soiree
KyCAD opened its doors on June 20 for its premier event of the year, the 2017 Summer Soiree. Some 150 people were on hand as a swanky lounge atmosphere enveloped the 849 Gallery and the newly remodeled Great Room in the rear of the building. Attendees viewed (and in some cases purchased) artwork from this year’s Senior Thesis Exhibition, nibbled on yummy food and beverages from Wiltshire Pantry and grooved to an intoxicating mix of salsa, jazz and soul music from DJ Kim Sorise.
Hosts Owsley Brown III and Todd Lowe capitalized on the energy in the room to remind those attending of how far we have come—and how much we have yet to accomplish. Brand-new Dean Moira Scott Payne was all smiles in making her public debut since joining the KyCAD family a week prior.
Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Brown-Forman, for its generous support of the Soiree, along with our other sponsors, Cary Brown and Steven Epstein, Libba and Bill Blodgett, Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, Kendra Foster and Turney Berry, Augusta and Gill Holland, and Frost Brown Todd LLC.
