Sandra ThompsonBecause I am passionate about all that the Kravis Center brings to our community, providing opportunities for many who cannot afford the ticket price to be culturally enriched by world class theatrical offerings, I am remembering the Kravis in my legacy planning.

Growing up on the beautiful North Shore of Long Island, in Victorian Sea Cliff, the area referred to as the Gold Coast with walled estates and natural beauty so close to Manhattan, studying art and design at Cooper Union, working in advertising and as Art Buyer for Redbook Magazine, and being exposed to live theatre early in my life, all combined to influence my love for all genre of art and culture.

I was the first Editorial Artist for the Ft. Lauderdale News and Sun Sentinel in the early 60s before discovering Palm Beach. I began painting Island images including a water color and an ink rendering of the Kravis Center in 1993 and wrote local histories such as Palm Beach From The Other Side Of The Lake, the Testa Restaurant Immigrant Story and the History of the Poinciana Chapel before becoming fully engaged in painting what has become over four hundred images of Palm Beach, many in private collections and over seventy-five have graced the cover of the Palm Beach Real Estate Guide magazine.

I feel particularly privileged to enjoy the Kravis Center and wish to help secure its future for many years to come.
