Answer: Yes, we have been season ticket holders for the last two years at the Eccles Broadway theater and have been moved, entertained, thrilled, and inspired by the various plays we've seen. Additionally, we have purchased other tickets to concerts and productions. My 21 year old daughter just graduated from DCAD, Delaware College of Art and Design and we have been deeply enriched by her work and growth as an artist over her years of public education in Utah and in Art School. I've also been deeply honored to serve as a member of the Arnold Friberg Foundation, the chariety arm of Friberg Fine Art. Society is blessed with enriching, uplifting efforts to expand a culture of art and beauty.
