Distinguished Speakers » Fashionistas Lisa Perry and Yvonne Force Villareal

Join us for a conversation between two of New York City’s most prominent art-fashion mavens, friends and collaborators Lisa Perry and Yvonne Force Villareal. Designer Lisa Perry is a style fixture who continually takes her appreciation of the design of the 60s to new heights. She blends her love of vintage fashion with her love of collecting pop art, including works by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Yvonne Force Villareal is the co-founder of the Art Production Fund, an organization that commissions ambitious public art projects with the aim of reaching wider audiences and expanding awareness through contemporary art. The fund works to reduce the physical as well as the psychic distance of cultural, class, linguistic, racial, and income barriers that may hinder participation in contemporary art. 

Following the lecture, there will be a signing featuring designs by Perry and Force Villareal.

$10 ($8 for Members), register online or by calling Guest Services at 479.657.2335.

The Distinguished Speaker Series is sponsored by Del Monte Foods, Inc.
