VLA Quote of the Day:

"Today You are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." 
 -Dr. Seuss       



Greetings and Happy Birthday  
Dr. Seuss (March 2)!

March is an exciting month -- not only is it Dr. Seuss' birthday, but the days are getting longer and at VLA our calendar is flourishing with classes and events.

This month we welcome VLA's newest addition, Valentina Rubio Dumornay, as our Office Administrator. Valentina has a background in art dealing and finance, and a Master's Degree in Visual Arts Administration from NYU. You can meet Valentina and VLA's other new staff at our Probono reception this month.

VLA would like to give our special thanks to the following supporters in February:
Happy Spring and Easter and Passover to all!

Best,
