Sculpture Center Fall Awards Gala



Almost everyone wore hats - some normal, many offbeat - to the $150-a-ticket International Sculpture Center Fall Awards Gala at the Westin. The event honored Cincinnati artist Patricia Renick and arts patrons Georgia and David Welles of Toledo.

The hats were in honor of Renick - she wears lots - and ranged from dressy like those worn by Joni Herschede, Barbara Hahn and Joyce Re to unique homemade toppers - hard hats with dinosaurs, rocks, streamers, toy Volkswagens and sculptor's tools glued on. (Renick once created a startling Volkswagen dino for the Contemporary Arts Center.)

The men sported ball caps, dress hats, cheese heads, hot dogs, even skullcaps. Money raised from tickets and the sale of Renick art - about $115,000 - will provide travel grants for University of Cincinnati art students.
