The 2015 CDA Annual Meeting & Dinner will be held Wednesday, January 28 at the Kimbell Art Museum's Renzo Piano Pavilion. The evening's keynote speaker will be Fort Worth Mayor, Betsy Price. The Annual Meeting and Dinner is CDA's biggest event of the year and serves as a celebration of 2014's accomplishments as well as a dramatic kickoff for 2015.
The Kimbell's recently completed Renzo Piano Pavilion will play host to the event. Since opening, the Piano Pavilion has received accolades the world over. From the Kimbell's website:
Piano’s low-slung, colonnaded pavilion with overhanging eaves graciously acknowledges Kahn’s museum building by way of its kindred height, emphasis on natural light, and use of concrete as a primary material... The pavilion is made up of two sections connected by a glass passageway. The front, or easternmost, section conveys an impression of weightlessness: a glass roof system seems to float high above wooden beams and concrete posts. Sleek, square concrete columns flank the central, recessed glass entrance and wrap around three sides of the building. The tripartite facade articulates the interior, with a spacious entrance lobby and large galleries to the north and south.
Mayor Betsy Price will be the evening's keynote speaker. Betsy Price, a Fort Worth native, was elected in 2011 as the 44th mayor of the City of Fort Worth. In 2013, Price ran unopposed and was re-elected to a second two-year term. As the 16th largest city in the United States, Fort Worth remains one of the fastest growing large cities in the country.
Individual tickets will go on sale in December.
