Perspective | MacKenzie Scott’s multimillion-dollar message: Art is essential everywhere, not just in museums and theaters

"Collage is one of the youngest dance groups on Scott’s list, founded in New York in 2006 by Marcellus Harper and Kevin Thomas, a principal with Dance Theatre of Harlem. They saw it as a way to carry on the legacy of Dance Theatre’s founder Arthur Mitchell, a pioneer in showcasing Black ballet dancers. Thomas and Harper moved to Memphis a year later, hoping to have a larger impact there than in New York’s crowded field. They were right, Harper says. (The company will perform at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts next spring.)"

Thanks Washington Post for sharing our journey and joy in being recipients of this transformative MacKenzie Scott award.
