New York Landmarks Conservancy Celebrates at MAD

The rain didn’t keep attendees from celebrating at  Museum of Arts and Design Wednesday night to honor the upcoming New York Landmarks Conservancy’s annual Living Landmarks, which include longtime MAD supports Barbara and Donald Tober. Joining them were fellow honorees Carole Bailey French, H. Carl McCall, and Emily K. Rafferty.

“I would like to take this moment to extend out from the MAD family a special congratulations to our own Barbara Tober and her wonderful, elegant, charming husband, Donald,” said Michele Cohen, the Museum’s board chair. “She has helped define MAD’s cultural legacy, providing a platform for national and international contemporary makers.” Chris Scoates, MAD’s Nanette L. Laitman Director, said, “Barbara and Donald Tober are a force of nature.” Peg Breen, President of Landmarks Conservancy, added, “We spend our time trying to save the rich layers of architecture that New York has. But Living Landmarks are distinguishing New Yorkers who help preserve the city in their own special way. We have another terrific group this year and we’re delighted that so many of them could be with us this evening. You’ve heard so much about Barbara and Donald. Donald is on our board, too. He really is a tourist in his own town, and I really admire that.”
