Off the Wall, Riverside Art Market, Julia Morgan 50th Anniversary Celebration, Fundraising for the Cheech Marin Center for Arts, Culture, and Industry of the Riverside Art Museum, Blue Door Museum Store.
Emmanuelle hosted with RAM the 50th anniversary of RAM and the over the top '60s party held to celebrate. From the '60s costumes (who can forget Sue Simonin in white go-go boots and Barbara Wallace as a flower child?), the '60s VW van out front, the fantastic food and bars, and the dancing? The dancing, the photo booths, the create your own art . . . it was a celebration that will never be repeated, but will always be remembered (and it was a significant fundraiser!!).

I think that everyone in Art Alliance was blown away when we heard Emmanuelle share her life story with us through the course of her paintings. What adventures! What joie de vivre! What incredible guts and passion! I mean, has a sheik ever offered your father 300 camels for your hand in marriage?
During her year, Emmanuelle helped with Off the Wall, Art Market, Holiday events, and the amazing 50th Year Gala for RAM. Not only did she do the physical work and planning, you could also count on her to be the last one at the party, dancing in her high heels.
