Art is Medicine Show, 2012

Santa Rosa's Imaginists theater company announced today it's touring summer show will be fully funded thanks to a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.

Imaginists Artistic Director Amy Pinto is excited about the possibilities this funding opens up. "Because of it, we can take more performances to the Redwood Empire Food Bank Summer Lunch sites," she says. "And tour Federico Garcia Lorca's 'The Billy-Club Puppets' to local parks on the weekends. This is the beginning of a new era for the Medicine Show."

The grant supports the Art is Medicine Show (El Show el Arte es Medicina), a series of free, bilingual performances in Santa Rosa. The shows will tour by bicycle caravan through July and August. Along with a core group of professional actors, the Imaginists offers internships to high school seniors and college level students.
