LAUDER--Evelyn. The Trustees, National Council, and staff of the Aspen Art Museum mourn the loss of Evelyn H. Lauder, a dear friend, and inspirational philanthropist who we will miss immensely. Evelyn and her husband Leonard A. Lauder were generous supporters of the AAM's exhibitions, programs, events, and vision. Her kindness and leadership were invaluable to the Museum and to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Her legacy lives on at the AAM and in so many other organizations to which she devoted her positive influence, energy, and ideas. John Phelan and Paul Schorr, Co-Presidents of the Board of Trustees; Eleanore and Domenico De Sole, Chairs of the National Council; Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, CEO and Director.
