TULSA, Okla. - Jan. 21, 2016 - PRLog -- Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa recognizes arts mentors at the Hardesty Arts Center with Arts Full Circle mural

[Tulsa, OK] — Whether a grandparent, friend, or teacher, many Tulsans can point to the person who sparked their own love of the arts. The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa will recognize arts mentors with a large-scale mural at the Hardesty Arts Center. The installation runs through March 4, 2016.

The list of names included in the installation Arts Full Circle is comprised of individuals nominated in answer to the question: “who inspired your love for the arts?”  Nominations were made along with donations to Any Given Child-Tulsa, a program for which the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa is the primary nonprofit partner. Donations directly support live arts experiences and student participation in Any Given Child – Tulsa, a partnership among the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Tulsa Public Schools, the City of Tulsa, and 14 Tulsa arts organizations.

The Any Given Child-Tulsa program serves every child, Kindergarten through 8th Grade, in Tulsa Public Schools. The Arts Full Circle campaign raised money to fund those students’ participation in the program. “Paying it forward' is really the theme of this campaign. Donors are helping to fund a current student's arts experiences while also honoring the person who did the same for them,” said Amber Litwack, Director of Any Given Child-Tulsa.

Donations to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, up to the campaign’s goal of $50,000.

Any Given Child-Tulsa serves every child, Kindergarten through 8th Grade, in Tulsa Public Schools. Each grade level is assigned to an arts experience, so while 6th graders experience a gallery tour and hands-on art project at a venue like the Hardesty Arts Center, 2nd graders take a field trip to experience the Tulsa Opera in person. Other grades experience dance, theatre, visual arts, museums, and music. The program is designed to offer a different arts experience every year for all Tulsa Public Schools students Kindergarten through 8th grade, partnering with local arts organizations to offer a myriad of resources.

Although the campaign has ended, donations are still being accepted at www.AHHAtulsa.org/artsfullcircle. A list of mentor names can also be found on the website.  More information about the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa and the Hardesty Arts Center may be found online:  http://www.ahhatulsa.org.
