SCENE TOASTING THE KIMBELL By Billy Fong. Photography Robert LaPrelle and Jill Johnson. Scene: Kimbell Art Museum's 50th Anniversary Dinner. Takeaway: Kimbell director Eric Lee and wife, Rima Lee, welcomed a who's who of well-heeled and tuxedo-clad patrons of the arts for this momentous occasion. High Point: Champagne glasses clinked as guests toasted the golden anniversary. One of Dallas' bon vivants, Brad Kelly, alongside his aunt, Nancy Dedman, remarked during cocktail hour … "How wonderful it is to see so many old friends from our two cities together again. Everyone looks so glamorous and very happy to see each other! A celebration of friendship and the Kimbell." And for dinner … Suffice to say that with an opening volley of Mosaic of Petrossian Caviar and Smoked Salmon, it was a glorious menu at this milestone evening.
