The Art of Conversation 2017

Chatting for City ArtWorks

Are you free for lunch? The 12th Annual Art of Conversation Luncheon is a long-standing tradition and primary source of funding that helps further City ArtWorks’ children’s education and community outreach initiatives.

Mady Kades

Join us as we honor Mady Kades, business executive, advocate of the arts, philanthropist and longtime supporter of City ArtWorks.

The Art of Conversation™ is more than just lunch! This event boasts a unique and fun format where each table hosts a celebrity guest, who donates their time and conversation skills to lead a unique and fun conversation at each table. This is a special opportunity for you and your friends to have lunch with your favorite Houston celebrity and get to know them beyond social media.

Please partner with us by serving as an underwriter or sponsoring a table. Your support allows City ArtWorks to champion positive change throughout the Houston community.
