Art strongly believes that performing arts education builds the audiences and artists of tomorrow. His longstanding support of Florida Rep’s Outreach & Education programming is legendary at Florida Rep. Art supports many other performing arts organizations and venues around Southwest Florida. He is a true believer. Art is the principal contributor to Florida Rep’s ArtStage Studio Theatre renovation project.
