Some 400 arts patrons mingled, dined and danced among 200 works by Rodin at Rodin by Moonlight, the biennial fundraiser for Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, on September 28, 2013. Dinner created by award-winning chef Mark Sullivan in collaboration with Paula Leduc Fine Catering was served in the Rodin Sculpture Garden where David Martin’s House Party played in front of the Gates of Hell.
The black-tie event was co-chaired by Lisa Mooring and Charlene Cogan. Proceeds not only benefit the Cantor Arts Center‘s educational programs and exhibitions, but also help the Center to remain admission free. The Cantor Arts Center, located on the Stanford campus, is open Wednesday – Sunday, 11 am – 5 pm, Thursday until 8 pm. Admission is free. The Rodin Sculpture Garden is open all hours, with lighting for nighttime viewing.
