I’ve spent a lifetime nurturing the seeds of creativity in artists both young and old and watching their artistic spirits bloom. Nothing makes me prouder than to see how beautifully some of those artists have grown and worked to cultivate the next generation. My soul glows with satisfaction for having been at least a small part of their artistic journey. Our community also shares that sense of pride with the continued success of Jazz Fest, Coastal Concerts, Clear Space, the Sea Witch® Festival, and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival to name just a few. Be grateful for the bounty of our creative harvest and do everything you can to support them! ▼
