Congressman Leonard Lance with Arts Access artist Luis Rodriguez.

When U.S. Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) toured Matheny and visited the Robert Schonhorn Arts Center earlier this year, he was so impressed with Arts Access  that he agreed to be honorary chair of Full Circle 2013 Reflections, the 20th anniversary celebration of the program. Now, Congressman Lance has confirmed that he will attend Full Circle and say a few words prior to the multimedia stage presentation.

“I was pleased to talk with staff and patients at Matheny and learn more about the facility’s first-class art program for residents,” said Lance, shortly after his January visit. “I was also impressed with the high quality of care that is provided to patients at this top-notch facility in Peapack.” Lance is co-chair of the Congressional Arts Caucus.
