I thought I'd start a thread for stories about those who contribute time and any money to the arts:

Quote:
An angel helps arts scene take flight

James Auer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

It's little wonder that Christopher Seton Abele opted to become an angel: His great-great-great-grandmother is a saint.

Here's someone who straddles both worlds. Alas, she is retiring:

Quote:
Stephens Masters the Politics of Arts

Celia R. Baker, Salt Lake Tribune

Bonnie Stephens is a Utah Republican who relishes the Bohemian world of art and culture, a woman with strong ties to rural Utah who also has national connections. Perhaps rarest of all, she is an arts lover who understands politics.

A tough job and I'm all the more appreciative of Mr Esparza:

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Lorene Cary brings world-class events to people of North Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Lorene Cary. Name sounds familiar. Isn't she the author of the Philadelphia slave-era novel, The Price of a Child - the book chosen for the city's first reading project?

An article on Maria de la Rosa, Artistic Director of Los Lupeños de San Jose, a Mexican folkloric dance company:

Quote:
Champions of the arts -- A heritage of dance
COMMITMENT TO HER ART BRINGS PERFORMER CLOSER TO TRADITION

Anita Amirrezvani, San Jose Mercury News

Maria de la Rosa's father can walk down almost any street in San Jose and tell you what kind of fruit used to grow there. He remembers the cherry orchard that gave way to the area around the Berryessa Movie Theater, the prune plum trees on the land that became the site of Piedmont Hills High School and the pears that shimmered in the orchards off King Road.

Here's an article on Bonnie Brooks, chair of the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago:

Bonnie Brooks: Staying on pointe

Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune

What inspires her: `Inspiration can come from so many sources. In broad strokes, mine comes from vivid encounters with the human imagination. I'm also inspired when I'm a witness to personal courage. I see that in my students. They're young, and they're brave.'

Making performing arts count where football is king
Orrin Cross made music cool, is big draw in local theater


Carolyn Jones, Special to The SF Chronicle

Orrin Cross' resume is laden with accomplishments and honors. The retired Pittsburg High teacher even has a street named after him. But the thing he'll be most remembered for in his 29 years as a teacher is that in football-crazed Pittsburg, he made acting and music cool.
