Artfully Done Cookbook Launch Party

This is part 1 of the party. I'm going to break this post into 2 pieces because there are so many great pictures.

The Friends of the Wichita Art Museum were responsible for gathering recipes and including 100 pieces of art from the Museum's collection. Connie Kendall and Karla Fazio were in charge of putting on the event, and wow did they do an incredible job! The cookbook was complied in memory of Carlene Banks, a longtime Friend. The party was a huge success and fun was had by all!
