A Lambs tradition since 1874 – each Shepherd has his portrait painted while in office. We have had 35 Shepherds and have all their portraits, except for one who choose to have a bust instead. So this equates to 144 years only 35 Shepherd portraits have been unveiled making this not a common event. All the portraits, including our newest, are property of The Lambs Foundation.
The portrait of Shepherd, Marc Baron, was done by Everett Raymond Kinstler, a Lamb and American portrait artist who has painted six American presidents.
The portrait unveiling will be held Friday, Oct 12th, 7-9pm, on our fifth floor surrounded by all of our past Shepherds.
The fee for members is $15 pp, payable to The Lambs Foundation. RSVP are a must no later than Oct 9th so the catering department will know how much food to order (2 hours of pass around food); a cash bar will be available.
The evening will include a discussion by the artist,
a talk about some of The Lambs traditions by Peter Kingsley, Boy of The Lambs.
Paul Chamlin will provide music,
and members are welcome to gather around the piano to singalong.
The Lambs has been recognized by Mayor Bloomberg, Senator Gillibrand, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Pope John Paul II.
