Together We Can Achieve More

THE PEOPLE

The Center has been made possible by the extraordinary generosity of our visionary Board of Directors, Founders, Capital Donors, Advisory Council, and Team Members. Their transformative giving, both profound and pivotal, has fueled our mission from its inception. To these transformative individuals, we offer our deepest gratitude. This partnership-led project makes a bold statement in saying that cultural campuses can – if planned and designed for it – serve a far greater purpose.
