Jack Lenor Larsen’s Birthday

Jack Lenor Larsen celebrated his birthday on Saturday, August 4, at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton. Said the 91-years-young master weaver, “Extreme old age is much better than it’s cracked up to be.” The evening began with cocktails, followed by a unique botanical Shakespeare concert featuring period instruments and songs citing the flowers and herbs in Elizabethan poems.

Guests included Judy Auchincoloss, Paolo Bartolani, Board Chair Dianne Benson, Katja Goldman, Helen Harrison, Arthur Hochstei, Susan Wood Richardson, Michael Sonnenfeldt, Lee Skolnick and JoAnn Secor, and Executive Director Matko Tomicic.
