The Timken Museum of Art hosted “White Nights & Russian Delights,” on March 1, 2013 in Balboa Park, San Diego. The event, co-chaired by Timken Board Chairman Tim Zinn and his wife, Ellen, featured a private viewing reception and dinner celebrating the museum’s Russian icon collection, newly installed by Executive Director John Wilson, Ph.D.

The Host Committee included Valerie Cooper, Jeanne Jones, Demi Rogozienski and Sally Thornton. Guests got an opportunity to hear remarks from Derrick Cartwright, Ph.D., formerly of the San Diego Museum of Art and the Seattle Art Museum, and now at the University of San Diego.

The theme, which celebrated Russian culture, was a rare opportunity to dine by candlelight on caviar, vodka tastings and Russian-inspired cuisine among the Old Master works of the Putnam Foundation’s permanent collection. The evening was topped off by Pomegranate Restaurant’s Russian Honey Cake and Strawberries Romanoff. Entertainment included Russian folk dancing by the San Diego Ballet and gypsy violin concertos. timkenmuseum.org
