Thank You, Gary Dayton

A Message From ATA Executive Director, Dale Davis:

Now that you have retired from The New York State Council on The Arts, how do we say thank you to you, Gary Dayton, for all you have done for artists in education and for The Association of Teaching Artists.

Thank you Gary!

Thank you for bringing us together in Poughkeepsie, in 1998, where the seed for an organization for artists who worked in education was planted. Thank you for nurturing that group of artists as we met again, developing a mission statement, goals, and the name of the new organization: The Association of Teaching Artists.

Thank you for your personal belief in artists and what we have to contribute to education. Thank you for your guidance.

Thank you for all of your work on ATA's behalf!


Dale Davis
Executive Director
The Association of Teaching Artists
