2019 New Hampshire Benefit
"At the Artist's Table"

October 19, 2019

Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to this spectacular evening. As a result of your generous support we raised nearly $50,000 to benefit our residency program.

Check out our slideshow from the evening.

Fellows Dan Hurlin, Martha Mooke, and Sigrid Nunez sit on stools on a stage during a panel discussion at the 2019 New Hampshire Benefit.

Fellows Dan Hurlin, Martha Mooke, and Sigrid Nunez discuss their creative philosophies at the 2019 New Hampshire Benefit in Colony Hall before a crowd of supporters, their friends, business leaders, and artists-in-residence on Saturday evening, October 19th.

Hosted by MacDowell Fellow and Board Member Dan Hurlin, the evening featured a stirring performance by composer Martha Mooke in The James Baldwin Library, followed by dinner in Colony Hall. After dinner, novelist Sigrid Nunez read a selection from a work in progress that was both funny and touching before Dan, Martha and Sigrid chatted informally about their creative experiences and the impacts of their residencies.

Our annual New Hampshire Benefit is held on the MacDowell grounds each year and brings together artists-in-residence, MacDowell supporters, and business leaders for an intimate community celebration of art and artists.
