The Artpark & Company Board of Directors threw a surprise birthday party Thursday for one of its own. Long-time advocate Rose Gellman was applauded for her efforts to promote the performing arts venue, and celebrated for contributions to the local community. Friends and family joined Artpark staff in the celebration and wished Rose a happy birthday.
Board member Sophia Smith (right), who planned the party and painted the picture at top, called Gellman "the coolest person I know."
