Congratulations again on such a wonderfully inspiring, thought-provoking, warm, on-fire, soulful show.  I loved the art/story connections. I look forward to seeing more of your work!  Laura Zam

The program today at the BMA was outstanding..  And, so many amazing aspects to the storytellers take on art, including the Blue Nude and Matisse with the tree in the background. Congratulations to you for this lovely production. M. Gornick

How lovely that I could be a witness to your rousingly successful event.  Penny Harris
