St. Vincent de Paul Free Dining Room

Lot with a Little Award
St. Vincent de Paul Free Dining Room, Debra Nichols Design

The St. Vincent de Paul Free Dining Room in San Rafael, Calif., has offered 350 meals a day, 365 days a year, for more than 25 years. Relying on monetary donations, volunteer help, and donated food, it offers its clients a warm meal in a safe environment, augmented with basic necessities such as counseling, clothing, and emotional support.

Operating out of a run-down Gold Rush-era building, the facility had poor lighting, holes in the floor, outdated amenities, and an overall depressing environment.

A result of six years of scholarship, the traveling exhibition Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future is the first comprehensive show of Eero Saarinen’s work. The Museum of the City of New York was its sixth venue after the 2006 inaugural opening in Finland. The show includes black and white photography, presentation and working models, furniture, ephemera, animations, drawings, sketches, and blueprints. For this viewing, curators highlighted Saarinen’s connection to New York, and a fresh new identity was generated.
