ARTicipate seat plaques in the Harold Shenkman Hall

“I donated in memory of my Mom, who loved music and dance. I am a visual artist myself and believe artistic venues of all kinds add joy to the lives of many. With so many funding pressures on governments at all levels these days, I think we all need to do our part to keep the arts and the joy the arts bring alive.”
