Publicolor Holds 23rd Annual Stir Splatter & Roll Gala

 Last month, Publicolor celebrated their 23rd annual gala, Stir Splatter + Roll at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

The evening’s colorful cocktail hour had 13 painting stations for guests to participate with some of NYC’s leading artists, designers, and architects including Nicole Miller, Paul Haigh, Pamela Bell, Marvel Architects, Judy Ross, and TuckeViemeister. New York based string quartet Ethel played as guests sat for dinner.

Ruth Lande Shuman, founder of Publicolor, marched proudly into the room with her students while We Are Family played in the background.  Ruth thanked the guests for their long-time support and commitment to helping Publicolor improve the lives of their students. Ruth welcomed Board member Gene Kohn to the stage who expressed his admiration for Ruth and appreciation for being a part of Publicolor.  Gene graciously introduced his friend and 2019 honoree Tommy Craig.  Tommy expressed his gratitude stating, "For those who have grown up with, we have a moral duty to be generous of those who are not."   Trustee Patricia Harris took to the stage to express her admiration and praise for her dear friend and honoree Ed Skyler who spoke about color and expressed, “Color has the power to inspire and transform.”  Ruth announced the evening’s final honoree, Dr. David Kirkland, who passionately said “Let your hopes and not your hurts create your future.” As the evening came to an end, dozens of students performed Ain’t No Mountain High Enough . The closing song is an annual tradition as it symbolizes that there is no limit to what these students can achieve with Publicolor by their side.
