Well, Leslie, I'd say you're the person in town most deserving of the "Arts Advocate" award.

From where I've been standing, way out on the periphery of Lawrence's art world, you've hustled as hard as anyone to keep the community part of the art community vital through the 411 art lectures and through the still-coming percolator.

You've worked hard, and in so doing you've helped make Lawrence a better and more interesting place to be.

(And, full-disclosure, I consider Leslie a friend. But facts is facts.)
