Dear Mr. Dunning-I was geniunely moved by your Signature Project Show. The images you created and the pictures you showed were simply astounding. As I love Irish music I did find it hard to watch everything as I would close my eyes and let myself blend in with the
beautiful music your brother composed and played. I felt very honored to meet you after the final show at our school and I hope that one day I will be able to shake your hand again. Thank you so much for coming to our little neck of the woods, for letting us know that all people count and for allowing our fifth grade students be a part such a wonderful masterpiece.
Sincerely, Deanna McDevitt-Special Ed Instructor, Fernan Elementary, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
I had the joy of experiencing the Signature Project on October 16, 2002 in Portland, Oregon. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to reflect on the divergence and beauty of life. Thanks so much!
I was greatly inspired by Patrick Dunning's presentation, performed for us at the NHRMA conference in Tacoma Washington. Trying to put it into words to describe to others has not done the performance justice. It is art in such a complicated mix of media, but born out so simply, that it is virtually impossible to describe. The presentation was exciting, captivating, and inspiring. I am going to our school district to see about having it presented in my town. I want the children to see what incredible things are possible in art, in combination with science and invention - more than paintings...more than sound...more than creativity. This was truly an incredible experience!
Was at the P&G deployment day in Lima ,Ohio on 7/15/04.Was really entralled with what you are doing especially the part of the victims of the 911 airplane passengers who perished in the attacks on the U.S.
When your finished with The Signature Project I will Be 21 and I will remember that totally awsome day in 5th grade when you came to my school. After that I will go buy a copy of it even if it costs a thousand dollars. It will be treasured forever.When I am 76 And A great grandma I will get to say to my grandkids and great grand kids that the best artist in the whole wide world came to my schooland gave a presentation.And that my 5th grade teacher signed the most woderful thing ever. I love your work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday Patrick Dunning came to our elementary school K-6. It was the best Assembly/Performance I have ever seen at a school site. The Art and Music were incredible and the technology added to the excitement. Visually and auditorially fantastic.
I am fascinated by the depth and breadth of this project. It seems as though it could go on for years and years.
Thanks for coming and I would love to see it again!
My third graders were blown away and they would all love to sign your project.
I never thought my signature was anything special until I signed your canvas. What a wonderful and inspiring presentation that puts everyday things into perspective. Thank you Patrick. Larry Cassity - Seattle, WA
Hi Patrick! I am a student from an Oklahoman high school that you visited on May 9, 2003. I was simply awed by your art. So many of the wonderful things you revealed about this art piece literally gave me chills. I admire you very much for all the wonderful and hard work you've put into this dream come true. I myself am a lover of art and am usually always found sitting on the floor of my bedroom with an art pad and millions of pencils and colors, drawing what lay in my imagination. I recently have started a drawing of Siberian husky breed dogs running wild in the blue mountains during a cloudless and starless night. I haven't been doing to well on it, because I am working with colored chalk and am having trouble getting it the way I want it. I was about to give up on my drawing, but when I saw all the work that you've been doing for years, I'm going to keep going on my drawing and make it better than what I myself hoped for. Thank you!
I stood in the back of the gym and watched Patrick's presentation to our elementary aged children. Each and every one of them were captivated the entire time. Our children come away with a much broader definition of creativity and art; something that we as teachers, administrators, and parents strive to understand ourselves. The children and adults alike are better for viewing this presentation. Thank you, Patrick and to our PTSA who brought you to our school! Fran McCarthy, Assistant Principal, Marysville, WA
My husband works for the school district in Driggs, Idaho. He watched your first presentation and called me to go watch your second presentation. I envy your creativity and talent. Thank you for sharing such beautiful art with us.
