“Free Evening at Academy of the Fine Arts
It was a large and interested throng of guests who responded to the invitation of the Art Committee of the Civic Club on the evening of Thursday, March 25th, at the Academy of the Fine Arts. The total number present was 1867.
It has always added to the interest of these evenings to give the visitors an opportunity to express their preferences for the pictures, and on this occasion the interest had been increased by the popular vote already given by visitors to the Exhibition during the week beginning March 7th- the first popular vote for which a prize had ever been offered. This prize has already been referred to in the newspapers as having been given by Mr. Edward Bok, and was awarded by popular vote to Patricia, by Miss Lydia Field Emmet. The same picture received the first popular consideration on this occasion.
The total number of votes cast was 967, and the favorite pictures were:
First . … Patricia, by Miss Lydia Field Emmet.
Second … O Ye of Little Faith, by Emil Carlsen.
Third … The Great Dane, a piece of sculpture by Edward Field Sanford.
For the able manner in which the arrangements were planned and carried out, thanks are due to Miss A. M. Archambault, the Acting Chairman of the Art Committee.”
