Mix and mingle with special guests, faculty and classmates at a special kickoff to the school year hosted at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

Enjoy a private viewing of “SPIKED,” featuring the controversial cartoons that got Rob Rogers fired from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Fill your plate with a ridiculously delicious mac-n-cheese bar, envious selection of sliders and a dazzling variety of desserts.

Prior to the reception, join us for a brief welcome from SMPA director Frank Sesno. 

He’ll raise the curtain on what promises to be a special year in Washingon and introduce the new SMPA fellows:

  • a chief Washington correspondent,
  • a former deputy White House press secretary,
  • an Emmy award-winning TV news producer
  • and a high-ranking American diplomat.

This will be a special evening of wine, cheese, free expression and the freedom of the press. 

We hope to see you there!
