(Photo by Roger FarringtonJ The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln welcomed 400 guests from the Greater Boston area to its annual "Party for the Park" benefit. Guests enjoyed cocktails and dinner provided by Max Ultimate Foods and bid on si- lent and live auction items including works by Andy Goldsworthy, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Rachel Perry Welty, Leonardo Drew and Roy Lichtenstein. Funds raised from "Party for the Park" went towards deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum's acquisition of Andy Goldsworthy's proposed installation called "Snow House." The acquisition of "Snow House" qualified deCordova as the only insti- tution in New England to have a major site-specific outdoor installation by Andy Goldsworthy and advance deCordova's goal of becoming one of the nation's premier sculpture parks by 2020. The event was co-chaired by Barbara Slater and Jeanne Stanton and art 'committee chair, Katie Block. Among those in attendance were: Manuel de Santaren, Fotene DeMoulas, Abigail Ross Good- man, Geoff Hargadon, Sinesia Karol, Arlette and Gus Kayafas, Liz Krupp, Bar- bara Lee, Joyce Linde, Rania Matar, Dan Mathieu, board chair Faith Parker, Rachel Left to right: Frank "Party for the Park."
