Muse Luncheon

The Muse Luncheon presents national speakers who represent the pinnacle of accomplishment, whose creative output inspires us all, and whose life work compels us to think deeply and richly.

Our inaugural speaker in 2017 was Oskar Eustis (below left), artistic director of New York’s Public Theatre and responsible for bringing to the stage such iconic productions as Angels In America, Fun Home, and Hamilton, among others. Our 2018 speaker was Bill T. Jones (video below), choreographer, dancer, theater director, writer, and recipient of a 2010 Kennedy Center Honor. Our 2019 speaker was Ali MacGraw (below right), who spoke about her acting and creative life, her contribution to our culture, and how she has evolved to who she is now.

Stay tuned for announcements of the anticipated 2020 Muse Luncheon date and speaker!
