About me

Introduction On November 12th, 2014, I became Chair of the ArtsFund Board. A few weeks earlier I'd made an offhand comment to my good friend and former ArtsFund chair Jim Duncan that I'd like to experience something from all the organizations ArtsFund supported last year -- you know, take in a play here, an opera there, a museum and a gallery along the way. How hard could that be? Pretty hard, apparently. Jim told me that he had concluded it was impossible. In fact, he said, he'd bet me a dinner out that I couldn't do it. To win the bet I have to attend (on or before November 12, 2015) a performance, exhibit or program at all 55 organizations that ArtsFund supported with grants last year. Game on!
