The Sam Francis Foundation at the White House Historical Association Reception

Debra Burchett-Lere, Director of the Sam Francis Foundation, was recently invited to the White House for a reception in honor of the White House Historical Association in recognition of American art. She was in attendance on June 5, 2013 along with artists and representatives of  foundations, organizations and museums from all 50 states. 

"It was such a wonderful afternoon," Debra comments, "3 hours of music, food, talk, and a personal meeting with Mrs. Obama, who was the host of the event."
