“This gift is a remarkable addition to the art on our campus and will enrich the lives of those we serve and their families for generations to come,” stated Mr. Fuks in making the announcement. “In addition to the intrinsic value of the presence of this beautiful artwork, it will be useful to our program staff as a part of the education and art therapy work done on our campus."
“We hope that the lives of the residents, visitors and the entire community will be enhanced by these special works of art that have been part of our families for many years,” said Gayle Romain of the Schnitzer Family.
