As an artist and business owner, Monique Harris was very interested in attending the East Bay Women in Business Roundtable Luncheon in Jack London Square. A panel of Oakland women in the arts held a lively discussion focusing on the thriving art community in Oakland at this Chamber event. The panel included Alison Best, president and CEO, Visit Oakland; Margo Dunlap, executive director of ProArts Gallery; Lori Fogarty, executive director, Oakland Museum of California; and Dana King, artist.
At the conclusion of the luncheon, Monique quickly maneuvered to meet the women, and was especially interested in talking to Dana King – artist to artist. Monique was delighted when Ms. King expressed an interest in coming to the CP Center to see some of her work. Monique’s departing words: “It was a good day!”
