This was the best presentation I have ever seen in a school. I think that every child on the planet should see The Signature Project. On a personal note I think Mr. Dunning would find it interesting to look at the work of Richard Taylor at the University of Oregon. Dr. Taylor's research into how Pollock's paintings and natural fractals reduce stress is very interesting. Fractals in art helped me see how many things in life are interconnected.
Thank you for a great show.
I enjoyed your presentation on 11/06/03 at Oakland Elementary in Butler, PA. The melding of art, music, humor and humanity was moving. The children loved it. After seeing you I can understand why people had a hard time describing what your show is like. Many Thanks, Heather Murphy PTO President
In the recent history of man there has been only one other project that comes close to your artistic endeavor to express man's place in the universe. That other project is the Disk Carl Sagon had made to accompny the Voyager on it's mission to Mars and beyond. The purpose of the Disk is to contact other intelligent beings with messages describing our world.
I was born in Bangor County Down Northern Ireland and worked at JPL Pasadena during the Voyager project. Quite frankly, I would have loved it if your Signature Project could have gone along on that mission. Surely, the recipie for Irish Soda Bread, celebration of life and love of our families is as strong if not stronger an introduction than would be accomplished by the Disk.

i consider myself to be an artistical person and i've been finding ways to conbines my love for music and art as well as my CHinese ancestry. Your project is such an enlightenment, that it has just taken up my entire to-do list! I the way you enbeded every single ascept of your personal life as well as the world's into one single art piece. I'm sure that this project will go down into the history book to be one of the most important art pieces.
love your brother's song, i absolutely love it. it's so dreamy and compassionate that i flet like crying in joy when i heard it. Is it possible to download it. I'd absolutely love that. thank you so much again for the coolest and most artistic presentation. it was truly an eye-opener
I saw your show at the Northwest Environmental Conference on October 16, 2002, in Portland, OR. It was truly a wonderful thing from so many perspectives. It was entertaining, with beautiful art and music, and thought-provoking intricate associations of people and the world of nature, creativity, and science. It is sure to appeal to all ranges of age and experience. I only wish I could have been one of the signers!
I recently had the pleasure of having Patrick's display at an assembly at my middle school. Words can't describe the emotion, beauty, and creativeness of this project. One teacher said, "In my 21 years of teaching, this is the best assembly I have ever seen." Students were equally impressed. The integration of music, the arts, and crtical thinking is something that everyone should see if given the opportunity! Highly recommended!

You were at my school, Spring Creek Elementary Nov.9-2oo4. I think that what you are doing is brave and it is showing people all around the world that life is full of suprises, and that anything is possible.
What a great idea. My teen aged daughter came home from school and told me all about it. I don't hear much about school so she must have been very impressed. Thank you for giving her something to get excited about & giving us a connection. Hopkinton, MA
I saw your presentation at the 2003 Northwest Environmental Conference in Seattle, Washington today and LOVED it! Your show made the entire conference amazing for me. Your stories about family, friends, life, hardships and turning negatives into positives touched my heart and soul. I also loved your brother's music! Our oldest daughter is involved in Irish Step Dancing and would enjoy dancing to Brian's music -- we'd love to get a copy of your brother's CD -- please keep us on your contact list. I will definitely recommend hosting your show as an event for St. Joseph School (which is our local Catholic school that our children attend). Lovely.

The Signature Project was an absolutely amazing assembly! All students and staff were mesmerized by the scope of the project and the genius of Patrick Dunning. This was a wonderful show that everyone should experience.
