Patrick Dunning's show this morning at our school in Northern New York was one of the most ingenious, inspiring, and moving experiences of my life!! Believe me, I've had many!! Every school should book a performance!!
Just seen this show at the Salmon River School and it is such an awesome show to see. Great experience. A must see.
Fantastic show this morning. I felt such a connection to everything you were doing, from the individuals signatures to the music and the photographs. This life is an enormous quilt filled with different pieces of experiences, memories, ideas. Your project really embodies that. Thank you!!
Hi Mr. Dunning!
I was in the crowd at OAS the other day, an 8th grader. I loved your presentation, thought you did a great job. What I really loved was what you said about finding your passion, because it's the same thing my father preaches to me all the time. I recently found my passion in the sport of golf, I took it up last year and love it. My family is full of golfers, so it's in my blood, and I've devoted so much time to it. Got pretty good as im now about a scratch golfer. I found what I loved to do, and despite what people may say about me doing it(golf isn't the most popular sport around) I am so much happier. Played so many sports all my life, mostly normal ones that people didn't make fun of, but I take my own path, and having a dad preach to me about finding my passion has helped me do that. I'm sure you will have great success with your project as you seem to really enjoy it. Good luck!!
Patrick Dunning's creative project is nothing less than inspired. With his music, imagery, ideas, interactivity, and choreography of personal and shared experience, he offered a glimpse of "life" to our student body and faculty alike. With unexpected connectivity between multiple screens, canvases, light, color, and sound, he transformed our school gym into a rocket ship of emotion: laughing, clapping, swaying, and crying. His message is simple and profound at the same time: that there is more than meets the eye and that what we don't see is what surrounds us, what holds us together. With color-coded signatures from people of all walks of life, Patrick Dunning is making a tapestry of life in The Signature Project. Without a doubt, this show is a miracle. All will be awed by it!
Patrick, WOW!! It was truly worth all the rescheduling around Hurricane Sandy to get The Signature Project here to our school for the 5-8th grade to see for the 1st time!!! Thank you! It was a beautiful, stunning, engaging feast for the eyes and ears! It showcased many layers of the arts and the human experience as well as passion about music, science, math etc. So glad we were able to see it!!!
I was so excited to be a part of your signature project. Your presentation was very moving and inspiring. You really have amazing insight in to the connections of life. We are all part of something so great, and unexplainable but you expressed it all so beautifully. Thank you!
Experienced your program today at my school in New Jersey. I laughed and cried...I left feeling so inspired by your creativity and sensitivity to life. Thank you so much for making a difference in our world and for sharing your art with me!
After teaching for 30 years I can truly say that this was the most motivational, touching assembly I have witnessed. It makes my heart sing to know that there are people in the world trying to make a difference through the arts like Patrick Dunning. Thank you.

We had the great fortune to witness your excellent show in NY in 2012. Almost a year later the experience still resonates with us. You took us completely by surprise. Wonderful. Bravo!
