“I was deeply moved and impressed by all you’ve achieved at the new center.I believe you have found, in a relatively short time a way to bring art to the community in a way that is extraordinarily useful, sustainable and reflective of the greatest purposes for art and the creative process. The scope and intensity of what you do is the high ground for art as a transformative path. You have brought together product and process with great integrity. Your vision offers a new way of thinking about art as an essential aspect of cultural identity and wellness. I think the key lies in your profound efforts to help a wide range of people discover the deepest sources of identity and effectiveness through the discovery of their own creative essence.
The location and astonishing beauty of your location left me with a great sense that you had indeed connected the inner and outer, as Joseph Campbell tells us is the purpose of art. The beauty of your physical setting is surpassed only by the beauty of your spirits and the nobility of the work you are undertaking. You give new depth and power to the world – create exciting new dimensions of hope and wellness. Your work is vital and essential-the embodiment of the new paradigm. I am always available to help you. Art 4 All People in any way I can. I will spread the word about the fantastic work you are doing and the pioneering efforts with which you are both so deeply involved. I offer you my best wishes and blessings for great success.” Mike Grady MFA
