I’m honored to be the first-ever Creative Ambassador for the Kennedy Center Honors. Being an artist in any capacity is a calling and also a responsibility. I am proud to be part of a community of fellow creatives who passionately perform their craft to serve the arts and the public. I hope the commemorative poster that I created amplifies the organization’s mission to break down barriers between audience and art, a mission that I also vigorously work toward through my own work. I’m excited to be at the event celebrating this year’s honorees George Clooney, Amy Grant, Gladys Knight, Tania León, and U2.
