The *Silver Rose Society
For lovers of Beauty who wish to share their values with others and support the work of ART in an especially generous manner, we have established "The Silver Rose Society.” When in the history of mankind have we ever known of an era—except the twentieth+ century—when people who loved beauty would have to stand up and say so? Well, so be it. But since we are supporters of Beauty, we can hardly wear a “badge” declaring our position unless that badge, itself, bespeaks the “Beauty” of our cause. Therefore, rather than tee-shirts or bumper stickers, we offer the historic (and romantic) symbol of Beauty: a simple but perfect rose.

The late sculptor Frederick Hart conceived the idea of a Silver Rose stickpin (suitable for men’s or ladies’ apparel), and sculptor/jewelry designer Gerd Hessness designed and executed an exquisite piece of jewelry exclusively for ART. This subtle and silent declaration of values may result in discussions decidedly not so subtle or silent, but either way it translates into publicity for ART. These pins will also create camaraderie among Beauty Lovers and become unique collector’s mementos for our high-level donors.

Individuals or corporations who donate $5,000 or more will have their name inscribed on the bronze bas-relief plaque which bears the Silver Rose symbol along with the names of other qualifying donors. This plaque (designed and donated to ART by sculptor Michael Wilkinson and cast as a gift by Elliot Gantz Foundry) now hangs in ART’s New York office. Silver Rose Society members are also privileged guests at special ART events, such as private art exhibit opening parties and our annual Board “Gathering of the Rose Table” Luncheon at The National Arts Club in New York—the oldest and most prestigious private arts club in America—all of which provides enjoyment and companionship among committed individuals with like-minded art values.

Silver Rose Society members will also receive the sterling silver rose stickpin, signifying that you are a member of the Society and a staunch supporter of Beauty and humanistic values in all of the fine arts. Ice-breaker, conversation-getter and publicity tool, this publicly displayed symbol stimulates both controversy and compatibility, but as it becomes recognizable throughout the country, people will begin to learn more not only about ART but also realize that certain of us are standing up for our aesthetic "rights."

By wearing this beautiful rose stickpin, we proclaim our dedication to Beauty and to a positive attitude toward the world and humankind, to live with grace and the conviction that joy and happiness are possible, and to champion the values of the American Renaissance for the Twenty-first Century foundation not with a sword but with a rose.
