Celebrate Carla Peterson!

Monday, Nov. 23, 2015, 8-10pm

We are proud to announce that the government of France has named Carla Peterson to the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. It is given to those who have “contributed significantly to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world.” And among other notable American recipients are Jim Jarmusch, Richard Meier, and Meryl Streep.

On Monday, November 23, 2015, the Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in New York will formally present Carla with this distinguished order. That same evening, from 8 pm to 10pm, Mount Tremper Arts invites you to the Mount Vernon Hotel, one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan, located on 421 East 61th Street, where we will celebrate Carla’s award and career.
