Inspiring youth through the arts
Join the Anthony Quinn Foundation for this once-in-a-lifetime event with Lin-Manuel Miranda -- Award-winning composer, lyricist, and performer -- creator and star of Hamilton, as we present him with the 2017 Anthony Quinn Foundation Award.
Lin-Manuel will be joined by Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of The Public Theater, and will participate in an intimate on-stage discussion on how access to the arts impacted them as children and teenagers, ultimately helping to shape the artists they are today.
"I think [the arts] saved my life, and pointed me in a direction. My grades were good, because I wanted to be allowed to be in the school play every year. The values you learn when you’re involved in creative endeavors in school apply to the rest of your life."
- Lin-Manuel Miranda
