Deena and Jerry Kaplan are not only collectors but were gracious hosts of the female ITE fellows during our Washington/Maryland tour. Their extensive collection of fine art was relished by the fellows on a daily basis, and by guests invited to dinner during our stay. There were so many remarkable pieces of art to enjoy.

Morning breakfast with Deena and Jerry began our days filled with great conversations and good food.
