The Museum's Multicultural Audience Development Initiative hosted its annual Women's History Month Celebration on March 5, 2014. This year we honored Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Founder and CEO of the National CARES Mentoring Movement Susan Taylor, as well as President of Asian Women in Business and MADI Committee Member Bonnie Wong.
Guests viewed the special exhibitions The Nelson Rockefeller Vision: In Pursuit of the Best in the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas and Jewels by JAR. Council Member Margaret Chin, a friend to MADI and the Met, introduced our honoree Bonnie Wong. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Trustee Charles N. Atkins introduced Susan Taylor, the Museum's Senior Vice President for Public Affairs Harold Holzer, Gale Brewer, and our surprise guest, Public Advocate Leticia James—who inspired the room with her remarks on the power of women to change the world for the better.
