Around here we love saying that “Creativity is ageless,” and that doesn’t just apply to film and TV. Many of our residents are accomplished in many aspects of the arts, some stemming from their own work in the industry. A pioneer in the world of computer imaging, Richard Taylor (Tron) is accomplished in more artistic fields than we can count – and his passion shines in his impressive body of work for everything from films to TV commercials. Just honored this month by the Society of Visual Effects, he’s now brought his creative spark to MPTF, including our latest Halloween greeting and upcoming holiday cards. Find out more about Richard and check out his impressive body of work here.
A remarkable professional artist, Sally Sloan has kept her passion for art alive here on campus by sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm with drawing classes designed for all skill sets.
