"The arts give a generation the ability to define its own time. It seems to me on a very grassroots level, the future survival of the arts in this country may have something to do with the artists, playwrights, and dancers opening their world to the next generation...There is nothing more inspiring for students than to meet an artist who has managed to make a life of creation and, frankly, there's nothing more inspirational for an artist than being in touch with the future."
-Wendy Wasserstein, Author & Playwright
"ArtLife presentations and programs are just joyful and heart felt...They delve into the soul of every participant, retrieving and releasing a colorama of creativity, voice and movement... artistic living on so many levels. You can't help but be moved and effected for "life" by the art and the artists brought to your door."
Susan Tucker, School Instructional Coach, Duval County Public Schools
