IN THE mid-1990s, the NYC Department of Education (DOE) wanted to bring back arts education to all schools. For more than a decade, the arts had been nearly eliminated across public schools in the five boroughs as the DOE grappled with budget cuts. With the support of Dr. Sharon Dunn and Chancellor Rudy Crew, Project ARTS (Art Restoration throughout the Schools) was conceived and implemented. Recognizing the opportunity for MFTA to support this initiative, Glass and Dunn brokered an agreement for some additional funding that would permit public school art teachers to have regular access to MFTA’s warehouse. The funding allowed for the hiring of a few new staff members, one of which was the Education Director. Glass found and hired Harriet Taub.
