  1. Malinda, I am continually impressed and, actually, amazed at where you have taken the Berkeley Arts Council. Your love and dedication is impressive and it all shows in your smile the dedication. Best wishes for continued successes.

    • This accomplishment came about through the dedication of a number of people, and especially I have to mention Rip Smith, who has been a driving force behind the promotional effort that’s required. We have a hard-working board of directors, and the response of the local arts community is gratifying. That–and encouragement like yours–refuels our energies as we move forward. We hope you’ll visit soon!
