Effective immediately, our Co-founder and Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors, Russell Simmons, will be stepping down from his post at Rush Arts. Over the years, Russell has used his voice and resources to help so many in our programs and around the world, and we are deeply saddened by his departure. Our Co-Founder and Co-Chairman, artist Danny Simmons who inspired our mission and has steered the course of the foundation over the years, will continue to serve.

We are resolved to remain focused on the critically important work of Rush Arts and its commitment to educating and empowering children and artists. We keep going.

Tangie Murray
Executive Director
