For more than a decade, Subaru has been supporting Perkins Center programs and initiatives. “Subaru has been a wonderful partner for the Perkins Center. Their commitment to the environment and the pride in their factories are things that are all a part of the future of how we can become more in balance with nature,” explained Alan Willoughby, executive director, Perkins Center for the Arts.
Past partnership initiatives have included these grants for the center:
- Summer Arts and Creativity Camp, which brought inner-city children together with children from communities surrounding the center
- Three-story-tall outdoor mural at Camden’s Molina Elementary School
- Facility in Collingswood, New Jersey, to be renovated into a “green” building via energy conservation, recycled materials, and insulation
The center is dedicated to the arts and providing a range of creative opportunities. Programs include studio classes, Exhibition Series (which promotes and supports emerging and established artists), individual and group music lessons, and an out-of-school program for at-risk youth.
