Holiday Arts Exchange
The Carr Center is one of the most vibrant, active art centers in the United States that is focused on developing the community. The incredible arts programming, the opportunities offered to young people to participate and the conscious commitment to cultural identity speaks volumes to the value of the performing arts in our lives.
Bravo for your vision and leadership!
Carrie Mae Weems’ willingness to begin the work of building an artistic and intellectual community by putting our work in conversation with each other made the Carr Center’s Independent Scholars Fellowship an immediately challenging space.
Teri Lynne (Carrington), Danilo (Perez) and Sonia (Sanchez), Thank you! Thank you! I have enjoyed you all immensely. Maya Angelou said thank you is what we say to God. I really hope that tells you just how I appreciated you all tonight .
I just checked the dictionary for a definition of “heartfelt.” It said, see Patrice Rushen and The Gathering Orchestra Nonet. I swear!
Ms. Rushen, thank you from the bottom of my jazz-fueled heart. What wonderful musicians, what wonderful music, and so young, sigh …!
