It was a night when Lehman College’s generous friends and alumni were showing their love for their alma mater. First the donors met for a reception in the Fine Arts Building where they enjoyed a private viewing of the Lehman College Art Gallery’s two recent shows Architectural Intersections and Landmarks of New York (see p. 36) before attending a special performance by the Polish Baltic Symphony, who performed works by Wagner and Chopin. 1. 2. 3. 7. 4. 5 2. 8. 3.
