The Culture & Animals Foundation joined with Compassion Arts for the first Compassion Arts & Culture and Animals Festival at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater at Symphony Space in New York City on October 21–22, 2017. The Festival was preceded and accompanied by a pop-up art show entitled “Beasts of Burden,” curated by CAF grantee Jane O’Hara. Other CAF grantees who performed or presented at the Festival included: Ayten Alkan, Michael Harren, Jo-Anne McArthur, Ellie Sarty, Jasmin Singer, and Mariann Sullivan. CAF vice-presidents Martin Rowe and Mia MacDonald, and CAF grantee Marisa Miller Wolfson, were the em-cees. CAF co-founder and board member Nancy Regan was also in attendance. Cyrus Mejia, whose image was used for the program cover, is also a CAF grantee.
We are excited that there is one week to go until the Compassion Arts & Culture and Animals Festival that we are putting on with Compassion Arts. The festival is taking place in New York City on October 21 and 22.
The Regan family and the CAF Board appreciate the outpouring of sympathy and support after Dr. Regan’s passing. So many of you have shared your stories with friends, colleagues and on social media as we continue to keep his legacy alive. Our deepest thanks.
