Please stay tuned for what we come up with in the future. Thank you everyone for your endless support.



Julie Hodgson, the LPM Development Maven, started the LPM Collectors’ Group in 2010 and has been organizing tours and presentations each month for five years. She has hosted tours of public and private collections and exhibitions, and has hosted a number of guest speakers who have generously shared their knowledge and passion with us. Guest speakers have included artists, directors, curators, gallerists, conservators, archivists, scientists, designers, framers, educators, appraisers, auctioneers, the media, and lighting specialists.
