Here’s the info. I think a lot of it has been done with the Save the date so you can just add on to it:
7:15-9:15: free flow alcohol and canapés at Foo’d in Victoria concert hall to honour President of CAA Donna MacPhee ’89 CC.
Price: $25 for members and $45 for non-members. Also include the link to join as a member and indicate that you have to have graduated from UNDERGRAD within 5 years to enjoy the $30 membership fee…I have emailed a few grad students to ask them to top up due to this misunderstanding.
We are trying to increase membership base, and are using this event to attract people to become members. Our cost is $70/head, but we should be break-even due to subsidies from Columbia up until 38 people. After that, we lose money on people coming..which is why we want to encourage people to join as members to help subsidise this event.
Tentative timing for docent led tour
Price: normal entrance fee at both museums, to be paid by participant
5:15 meet at Asian Civilization Museum
5:30-6:00 Tour of Tang Shipwreck (coincides with current NY Asia Society exhibition from the Tang gallery)
6:00: meet at the National Gallery (houses the world’s largest public collection of SEA art and Singaporean art in impressive heritage buildings)
6:10-7:00: Tour of NGS
RSVP to Mary at Maryakuo@yahoo.com. I’ll keep track of membership list and encourage people to join as members.
