On August 31, WALTER celebrated the 10 years since its first issue with a festive evening at the NCMA.
Happy birthday to WALTER! The September 2022 issue of WALTER marked the 10-year anniversary of the magazine, which was first published in September 2012. To celebrate, we gathered current and former staff, contributing photographers and writers, advertisers and other supporters of WALTER for a rousing party at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
At the event, WALTER publisher David Woronoff and editor Ayn-Monique Klahre shared thanks for the many people who have helped our publication reach this milestone. On hand were founding editor Liza Roberts and founding creative director Jesma Reynolds, who first concepted the magazine in 2012.
As the sun set over the Museum Park, we enjoyed beverages from Westgate Wine, Trophy Brewing, R&D Brewing, Raleigh Brewing and Lonerider Spirits. Catering Works provided the delicious food, Alphagraphics made our cool signage, Glas made our glowing logo, and TapSnap provided the fun photo booth. Peter Lamb & The Wolves kept us going from our chill cocktails to the late-night dance party.
