On May 9th, members of the Ministry were invited into the home of avid art enthusiasts Alison and Alan Schwartz, for a private tour of their extensive art collection. The tour was led by Alan Schwartz, who has served on the boards of the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The members were treated to insightful commentary of each piece in the collection, which included work in a variety of mediums and by contemporary art legends like Cindy Sherman, Richard Serra, and Andreas Gursky.
