NEWS! We are pleased to announce two developments. It’s official – Ballet Diane Hyrst is now the “fiscal sponsor” of Restore the Arts (we are tax sheltered by them) and can receive tax deductible contributions. AND Mr. Harry Veryser has been elected to join the Board of Directors as a 5 year member. Harry is a professor of economics at two colleges in Michigan, and he is the founder of the American Society on Economics and Culture. He was quite close to the prolific writer on culture, Russell Kirk. Harry is also a Shakespeare devotee, and that is how we met him, about 20 years ago in Ashland, Oregon, while Veryser was attending the Peter Britt Classical Music Festival and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
