The Nakashima Foundation for Peace will celebrate the 110th birthday of George Nakashima and the dedication of the plaque marking the property as a National Historic Landmark on Sunday, June 14 at 3 p.m.
The event will take place at the Arts Building at 1847 Aquetong Road in New Hope, and champagne and light refreshments will be served.
Scott McVay, the former head of the Dodge Foundation and past president of the Chautauqua Institution, will share remembrances of the artist.
This celebration benefits the Nakashima Foundation’s programs for preserving the legacy of George Nakashima, and for bringing together people of the world around ‘Sacred Peace Tables.’ The Sacred Tables, envisioned for every continent, are already in place in North America at St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York City, the Unity Pavilion in Auroville, India, and the Russian Academy of Art in Moscow — with the next planned for the proposed Desmond Tutu Center in Cape Town, South Africa.
The symbolic donation of $110 per couple or $55 per person is tax deductible, and will benefit the work of the Nakashima Foundation for Peace. Space is limited, so those interested in attending or donating can do so online.
Donations can also be sent to Nakashima Foundation for Peace, 1847 Aquetong Road, New Hope, PA 18938.
