I'm an Assistant Professor of New Media and Informatics at Indiana University South Bend and a Time Based Media artist. The Alcott Art Center was one of my first exhibitions in undergrad at Kansas City Art Institute. They couldn't be any nicer people then the people at the Alcott Art Center.

My daughter has had the grand opportunity to perfom at the Alcott Arts Center for Shakespeare in the Parking Lot V 2011, "As You Like It". The experience has been great for us as a family and individually for my daugther. What the founders are doing for the community is to be commended and I can only hope that they are able to continue receiving donations to keep this great center going for many, many years to come. My daughter has had the fortune to work with Director, Dr. Susan Proctor who has first of all taught my 13 year the appreciation of Shakespeare and provided her with the experience to work beside several talented actors in the community. Thanks to everyone at Alcott for the experience and we hope to work with you again in the future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daugther was challenged with the lengthy monologue's in the play and truly quite daunted by the challenge of memorization. As she worked beside a great Director and several talented actors she was able to calm her nerves buckle down and conquer her fear of doing a very tricky and hard to memorize play by Shakepeare. I couldn't be more proud of her growth as an actor in this play!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to provide more funding to Alcott.
