We are proud to be the lead donor for Art in the Loft’s annual special appeal which reached its goal last week.
The program supported by this year’s fundraiser is “Art and the 5 Senses,” a hands-on art experience for those with dementia and their caregivers.
Attorney Karen Bennett and her husband, Chuck Bennett, were founding members of Art in the Loft and have been active supporters and volunteers over the past 20 years.
“Art in the Loft began as a six-week experimental project in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.” said Karen Bennett. “It was a way to connect the community through the arts to provide a sense of well-being and hope during difficult times.
It is very gratifying to see the organization is still going strong and celebrating its 20th anniversary as a full-fledged community arts center. Thousands of people of all ages and abilities have had the opportunity to participate in the arts because of Art in the Loft. It continues to grow and thrive because our community has fully embraced the arts center, and recognizes the power of the arts to change lives.”
