Art has loved theatre since childhood when his parents introduced him to Julie Andrews, Richard Burton, Anthony Newley, Mary Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Robert Goulet in their award-winning performances on the Broadway stage. Art strongly believes that performing arts education builds the audiences and artists of tomorrow. His longstanding support of Florida Rep’s Outreach and 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.
