Paula Gustafson

"… if I may, I'd like to take a moment to turn the spotlight to everyone who contributes time and energy to sustaining the arts — whatever way we do it. Those of us who make art also have the responsibility of being its stewards — of committing ourselves not only to achieving our individual goals, but to ensuring our arts organizations remain vital — to participating in cultural events — to encouraging and mentoring young artists, and — to remind our politicians, regularly, that art isn't about the bottom line — it's a hallmark of civilized society. Our success is measured not in what we get, but in what we give."

Paula Gustafson
(1941-2006)
