NEW YORK, NY.- Peter Max and Annette de la Renta, two major figures in the art world, will be honored by The Black Alumni of Pratt (BAP) on Wednesday, May 26 at black tie dinner at the Four Seasons restaurant.

Max will receive the prestigious “Pinnacle Alumni in Art and Design Award.” President Bill Clinton will make the presentation by video. When Max learned that another honoree is Lee Daniels, the director of the now filming “Selma” about Martin Luther King, he donated a portrait of Martin Luther King for the BAP auction.

Annette de la Renta will receive the Distinguished Patron of the Arts Award. She serves on the boards of the Metropolitan Museum, the New York Public Library, the Morgan Library, The Animal Medical Center, and the Engelhard Foundation. She also served on the board of directors of Rockefeller University for 25 years.

Both of the honorees are receiving their awards for both the marks they have made in the art world and for their considerable humanitarian work.

The Black Alumni of Pratt (BAP) was founded in 1990 to identify and advance scholastic and professional opportunities for Pratt alumni and talented, yet needy Pratt students of African and Latino descent. What started as a small group of humble Black alumni of Pratt has evolved into an organization of alumni, friends, and corporations, who have accomplished: $2.2 million dollars in stipends and scholarship funds (as of 3/10/10), $1.6 million in endowed scholarship fund, $193,000 in full-time scholarships and room and board for seniors, and $335,000 in stipends for materials and supplies.
