It's a Pecan Party! and tour at the Society of Illustrators 

Wednesday, December 8  2PM to 5PM

                                                           si-and-pecans                              ~                                                                                 


 Now you can buy smaller quantities of Smith Pecans of mixed varieties for the Holidays -  fewer than six at a time - and contribute to the NYC Smith College Scholarship Fund! Enjoy some pecan samplings, an aperitif (cash bar) and get an exclusive behind-the-scenes guided tour of the Society of Illustrators’ Permanent Collection.


The Society of Illustrators (SI), the oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to the art of illustration in America, will host our party on Wednesday afternoon from 2PM to 5PM. The approximately one-hour tour, conducted by the Collections Manager will begin at 3PM. The Permanent Collection, which includes over 3,500 pieces includes works from notable Society members including N.C. Wyeth, Rube Goldberg, and Norman Rockwell, among many others. 


Pecan sales will continue throughout the afternoon. The tour is free-of-charge for Smith alums and does not require a pecan purchase.  


The same varieties of 2021 Pecans, as the Club has traditionally-sold– Mammoth halves, Dark Chocolate Covered and Milk-Chocolate Covered will be on-hand for on-site purchase at prices comparable to those of 2020!
