"Festival is a big part who I am as an artist. I believe Festival is an important part of the community of Princeton and the community of artists who have, and will, work here. Most of all, Festival 56 is important to the people in Illinois, and around the country, who have learned something or been entertained by the art we produce. Those patrons are forever a part of our family."
