On Wednesday, May 3rd, a full house gathered at the Salmagundi Club to celebrate Media Arts with Magic Box at FOCUS 2017, honoring Shree K. Nayar - T. C. Chang Professor of Computer Science  at Columbia University, and Martin Crook- Award-Winning Photographer.

Guests enjoyed wine, hors d'oeuvres, live music, an exhibition of our student’s best photography & video,  and a silent auction in this beautiful and historic NYC landmark.

Magic Box Productions donors, staff and collaborators joined together to make this a fabulous event, and to raise funds to help us continue to bring outstanding media arts programs to more students each year!

Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the Benefit committee:  Nancy Barry, Nancy Camarata, Chris Campbell, Lucie Mitchell, E. Annette Nash Govan, Suzanne Storer, and Brette Westerlund; to the Salmagundi Club Staff; and to our pianist Stephen Feifke. Thank you, all!
