Gayle King is listed as one of the many supporters of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Gayle is known for her support of many worthy causes. The Rush organization, and its supporters, desires to help underrepresented artists, artists of color, and others through the arts. They believe in the value and contribution of the arts to individuals and society.
In addition to the 2,300 students served in its education programs, each year Rush exhibits the work of 40 to 50 emerging and community-based artists in its galleries; welcomes over 10,000 gallery visitors; and provides unique opportunities for young galleries and arts education programs in Chelsea, Manhattan (Rush Arts Gallery) and Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (Corridor Gallery). Rush Education Programs are designed to inspire students, provide positive alternatives to high-risk behaviors, and support increased academic performance.
Those living in various New York neighborhoods are given a greater opportunity to rise above their circumstances. Perhaps their model and success will continue to grow, and influence other areas for good. I wish them well. I look forward to the day when The Seven Steps Foundation will serve those living in these areas.
The dreams come true blog extends an open invitation to Gayle King, and others, to submit guest posts for the dreams come true blog.
