Lucinda Gordon (left) and Gloria Wright were among five individuals who received Friends of the Arts Awards June 10 from Mayor Tom Barrett and the City of Milwaukee Arts Board. Along with the late Dorothy Nelle Sanders they co-founded the African American Art Alliance at the Milwaukee Art Museum in 1990.  The alliance is still active today, 24 years later, raising money to support the acquisition of African American Art for the collection and to increase participation and engagement with the museum.  They were nominated for the award by Arts Board member Mildred Harpole.
