RCA Remembers Charlotte Shannon Hilton
In August 2011, the Art Center lost an invaluable board member, a fine artist and dear friend.

Charlotte Shannon Hilton served as Secretary on the Art Center Board of Directors, championing visiting artist workshops and introducing the arts community to artists Arne Westerman and Stella Canfield. She hosted regular artist critiques at her home. Both Charlotte and Cecil hosted the annual Tour of Homes Kickoff Party in 2009. In addition to serving on the board, Charlotte volunteered her time as a docent for the Art Center, and helped organize many auctions, receptions, and events. Charlotte became esteemed for her dedication to improving her community's appreciation of art and life.

Contributions in honor of Charlotte are being directed toward the Art Center's first artist-in-residency program.
