"I will always remain in awe of the emotional, physical, philosophical, and spiritual environment that I was allowed to share with a handful of remarkable, dedicated people for one month in October. Thank you so much for the most memorable and important experience in my life as an artist."
- Rea Mingeva,
Visual Artist, Minnesota
