Leibers Honored

(click for larger version)
The Leiber Collection, located in Springs, has been honored by both the Town of East Hampton and the State of New York.

A proclamation issued by the East Hampton Town Board and presented by Deputy Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc earlier this month, declared "The Leiber Museum has been visited by thousands of students who regard Judith Leiber as a fashion icon and pioneer, and has welcomed visitors from virtually every state and several European, South American, and Asian countries who have made it one of the cultural monuments of East Hampton, therefore, the Town of East Hampton honors Judith and Gerson Leiber for their artistic achievements and cultural contributions to our community."

The State of New York also issued a proclamation that was presented on the grounds of the Leiber Collection by State Senator Ken LaValle and State Assemblyman Fred Thiele. They proclaimed, "In East Hampton the Leibers have built a magnificent Palladian-style museum on seven acres of beautiful gardens . . . the legislative body is proud to extend its highest commendation to Judith Leiber for her dedication and commitment to her community and heritage."

Earlier this year both Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Charles Schumer issued similar proclamations that commemorate and honor the artistic contributions of the Leibers.

The Leiber Collection is open and free to the public on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays from 1 to 4 PM. For further information, visit the www.leibercollection.org or email info@leibercollection.org.
