Bob Dix SVMoA Voices

“As the art teacher at Hailey Elementary, SVMoA played a vital role in my curriculum. To have such a diverse and vibrant art scene readily available supported my teaching and enriched my student’s love and appreciation for art. The Museum’s frequent visits to our school exposed them to all forms of art, through visiting artists, musical and theatrical performances and workshops. Field trips to the museum became a much anticipated and favorite event. Even simple things like how to look at art in a museum was an important part of their art education. Transformed, countless have gone on to win SVMoA scholarships furthering their love and appreciation for the arts.”
