“Being in Madison Saturday was a happy day for me. It was very nice meeting you. Leslee Nelson’s presentation was a rewarding pleasure, even helping me with an idea for my (hopefully) future work. The Wisconsin Regional Art Program is a wonderful opportunity—for everyone in the state—to personally participate in the arts. I think I heard Ms. Nelson say that John Steuart Curry started the program in the 1930s as part of The Wisconsin Idea. That idea—education, thought, creativity, social, and environmental relationships—is at the heart of the state of Wisconsin. What an idea! Thank you for making it real.”
