Snapshot: Carney hosts ‘colorful voyage’ dinner


By Sara Baldwin

On June 3, six guests arrived at Joan Carney’s Carmel residence to enjoy a philanthropic dinner party benefiting the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. The guests won tickets to the dinner party through an auction fundraiser for the museum. They arrived in Carmel from Lafayette in a limo provided by the museum. Carney, a longtime art collector and former owner of Lilly’s Boutique Gallery in Zionsville, provided a “colorful voyage” that took her guests on a journey through several different exotic backdrops, including Turkey, Greece and Morocco. The dining experience was donated by Carney to the museum’s auction as a way of showing gratitude for helping her launch her career in the art world several years ago.
