I heard about a number of exceptional artists I would not have encountered on my own. Thank you for hosting such an insightful event. CAROL GOLDBERG, collector I just wanted to thank ICI for the event with Richard Armstrong at the home of Eileen and Michael Cohen. It was great to meet the hosts and get their insights into their collection, as well as fascinating to hear about the history and future of the Guggenheim. ICI is going great guns.
