Super excited for the young artists of YA/YA, Inc., the amazing teenage design studio from New Orleans documented in my film Young Aspirations Young Artists! They are in New York City this week installing the set pieces they were commissioned to create for the Guggenheim’s annual production of “Peter and the Wolf. ” The performances will take place in the Guggenheim theater December 10-14.
To celebrate I’m going to donate 10% of each sale this month of the newly rereleased YOUNG ASPIRATIONS/YOUNG ARTISTS on DVD to YA/YA Inc. This inspiring documentary chronicles the origins of the group, and teaches how to create a successful youth arts program in any school or community. It’s available for educational use on DVD or Digital On Demand at http://newday.com. For a $25 home video copy, contact me directly.
