As many of you know, I am leaving the foundation after 22 wonderful years. It has been my great fortune to have had such a challenging, stimulating job, working in the arts with the people I most admire. And you in the Initiative are at the top of that list. I know Rachel, who will lead the program, and James will carry on the work brilliantly, with the aid of Jackie and support of Joel and the foundation’s great board of directors and staff.
Enjoy San Francisco. I’ll miss being with you.
