Jennifer Oxley spoke at our Annual Meeting this Fall. She's an Emmy-winning filmmaker and animator in N.Y. Twenty five years ago she was our first Apprentice. Jen showed a short film, The Music Box, that she had presented at MOMA. In the film, a young girl triggers a relay of toy parts, a robot, a slinky, marbles and dominoes to open a music box with a twirling ballerina. Inventiveness nurtured in our Workshop blossomed in that film.

Keeping Promises

When I was young, there was a gifted furniture maker in New Haven whose work had all the elegance of an old master. I was in awe. I asked him if I might just stand behind him to watch him work on the lathe. The man answered my question with a rude: “No.” “I learned the hard way,” he said. “So must you.” I could not accept that. I resolved that I would never deny an eager student my skills, my experience, my passion for the craft. What we have been given, we must give.

Finding Long Vision
Felix is six. Standing amid a group of red-shirted apprentices, he announced that he was going to work at the Museum when he grows up. He may not understand that DJ* (now 19, and with us since he was six,) will be well beyond college when he begins his apprenticeship at age 13. But Felix knows that what DJ, Ali and the others do is good, and that it will be here for him in 7 years. And that he will be here for us. Felix has long vision.
