The first-ever ICAA Northern California Legacy Dinner, which will be held at The Green Room in the San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center on September 18, was created to recognize architects, designers and patrons who uphold classical design ideals. The evening will also support funds for ICAA NoCal’s continuing-education initiative. The organization shares that it is “extremely proud to honor San Francisco interior designer Suzanne Tucker this first year, for her invaluable leadership and generous contributions to the ICAA.”
“Aside from her numerous awards and professional accomplishments with her 30-year interior design firm Tucker & Marks, Suzanne is an iconic member of the international design community,” says the ICAA of board member Tucker, who chairs the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show, and serveson the West Coast Council of The Garden Conservancy. She is also a member of the Design Leadership Network and The Leaders of Design Council.
“A founding director and past president of the Northern California Chapter, Suzanne also serves as a trustee on the National ICAA Board and co-chairs the Institute’s venerable Arthur Ross Awards in New York,” says the organization. “A passionate and visionary design advocate, she founded the ICAA Northern California Julia Morgan Awards, launched Designer Saturday and the ICAA Northern California annual Lunch & Lecture at the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show, and has annually sponsored its expanding lecture series. For over a decade, her enthusiasm and commitment have been an inspiration to the many programs, scholarships and events, distinguishing Northern California amongst the 15 other ICAA chapters.”
The ICAA is a nonprofit committed to advancing the classical tradition across architecture, urbanism and related arts.
