Kozo Garden Party: Celebrating Growth & Community at the Morgan

Updated: Aug 21, 2023

Thank you to everyone who attended the Morgan Conservatory's 15th Anniversary Kozo Garden Party last month. In commemorating a remarkable journey of 15 years, we raise our glasses to this milestone as we raise our voices in gratitude to the supporters of the art community who made the event truly memorable. The paper art demonstrations, live jazz music by the Glenn Holmes Trio, and the delicious dinner catered by Mark Chase, dessert by the Williams family, accompanied by Mammen Mathew's exquisite drinks and wine, created an enchanting evening.

Whether you made a donation, purchased tickets, or purchased artwork in our live auction, we deeply appreciate your contributions throughout the evening, which will go towards our ongoing effort to sustain and preserve the art of papermaking. As we reflect on the success of the Kozo Garden Party Benefit and the invaluable role played by our attendees, we are excited to extend an invitation to join us in a series of upcoming events throughout this remarkable year!
