It was a night for dining and dancing and laughter.

But, mostly, it was a chance look to the future.
Studio Incamminati's signature support event, "Nelson Shanks: His Vision in Our Hands," brought hundreds to the iconic Ballroom at the Ben for a celebration of the school's accomplishments and glimpse of things to come.



Some highlights:

  • A film premiere showcased Nelson's educational legacy, most notably the school he founded, including highlights of its successful graduates, vibrant programming and a strengthening commitment to meaningful art.
  • Master of Ceremonies Christopher Apostle, Head of Department, Old Master Paintings at Sotheby's, brought smiles and tears with his intimate stories of Nelson.
  • U.S. Rep Michael Fitzpatrick presented his Congressional Record Statement honoring Nelson and his committment to art and art education.
  • A touching speech by Stefany Rodriguez, a teen in the Emerging Artists program for high schoolers, moved guests to donate thousands for program's scholarship fund.

Above all, the night was dedicated to showing the strength of Nelson's legacy - Studio Incamminati - and how it is living up to it's name and "moving forward."
