The Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s 2019 Renaissance Ball will honor two of the Museum’s most generous supporters and leaders, Leslie and Cliff Hudson.

Leslie and Cliff Hudson have been loyal supporters of the Museum both personally and professionally for many years. Leslie has served on the Museum’s Board of Trustees since 1997 and served as Board Chair from 2004-2006. Leslie and Cliff have been season sponsors to the Museum for twenty years, with their generous support underwriting many of the Museum’s exhibitions and programs. The Hudsons chaired the 2008 Renaissance Ball and served as Sponsorship chairs in 2002.

Dr. Leslie Hudson received her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Oklahoma and was a faculty member until 2000. Among her many civic activities, she is a member of the Advisory Board of the University of Oklahoma College of Public Health, and a former member of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

Cliff Hudson is currently of counsel with Crowe & Dunlevy Law Firm. He is former Chairman of the Board and CEO of Sonic Corporation. He is a former trustee of the Ford Foundation and past chairman of the board of trustees of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

In addition, SONIC has served as a season sponsor to the Museum since 2012 as the presenting partner for SONIC Free Family Day, a bi-annual event that has welcomed over 28,000 visitors since its inception. In 2001, the SONIC Arts Education Endowment Fund was established to fund arts education programs at the Museum. This endowment currently serves as the only Museum endowment established by a corporation.

Please join us in extending our deepest gratitude to Leslie and Cliff Hudson for their support of the arts and education in our community and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
