The Claremont Museum of Art is hosting Velocity 2007 this coming weekend. I was honored to be invited to contribute a piece to the museum's fundraising event. This event is dedicated to the work and vision of Milford Zornes who will be celebrating his 100th birthday on January 25th.
Velocity 2007 is a contemporary art auction to benefit the new museum in Claremont:
Friday, November 16, 2007
6:00 PM-8:00 PM
Art Auction and Reception:

Live auction 8:30 to 10 p.m.
Guests will enjoy hors d’ oeuvres by Three Forks Restaurant and a hosted bar throughout the evening. Music will feature the sounds of Refugio Latin Jazz Trio.
