Broward County Commissioner LoisWexler will serve as honorary chair.
“Each year we celebrate all of ourWomen of Vision,” said Mindy Shrago, CEO of Young At Art Museum. “In addition this year, we proudly honorNelly and Chantal, who have gone above and beyond with their support of all of our efforts both here in our fabulous new Museum and in years past. Nelly has generously dedicated countless hours and resources to many of Young At Art’s programs. And all you have to do is look around the Museum, and you will see IKEA’s distinctive touches everywhere. Chantal and her team also have donated so much of their time and beautiful furnishings and decorative pieces to the new Young At Art.”
