Harvard School of Medicine Genetics Professor Dr. Robert C.

US Army veteran-turned- death-defying photographer Isaac Wright shared his unbelievable story and images. In an intimate talk, he recounted his journey from tough childhood and devastating military service to the daring artistic pursuits that helped him cope with PTSD: shooting images from the tops of buildings, statues, and bridges that he’d scaled. The stunning photos shot from these heights and perspectives led to social media popularity, followed by a nationwide manhunt and four months of incarceration….and ultimately—to his calling as an NFT artist and an avid activist for social justice and prison reform.
In an exclusive, after-hours experience at the world’s first Museum of Graffiti, members witnessed famed street artist Saber complete and install artwork for his upcoming show—in such proximity that some even became part of the art! The event was preceded by a private tour of the museum, and followed by a Q&A with the artist.
Additionally, Rose hosted fun Social Series events, including a dog Halloween costume mixer: Biscuits, Bones & Bellinis, and film screenings including Roadrunner: A Film about Anthony Bourdain and The Lost Leonardo, the story behind the most expensive painting ever sold.
"Faena Rose provides world-class programming for an exclusive group of members who are passionate about art and culture, and also care deeply about the world in which we live. ”
