The intimate evening at the museum's Great Hall will include cocktails and a seated dinner, followed by the award presentation and an acoustic set by Melissa.
“I am honored to receive this award from the National Museum of Women in the Arts. I have long admired their work and salute this museum for all it is doing to celebrate women artists, especially the women who challenged societal norms to pursue careers in the arts. These women inspire us all and I am proud to be among them.” ~ Melissa
