Silas H. Rhodes

Last Wednesday the world lost a truly wonderful man and one of the great innovators of arts education, Silas H. Rhodes. I knew Silas as the co-founder of the School of Visual Arts, but his accomplishments inspired far beyond the walls of the college he helped create in 1947. He was a visionary, a creative, a champion for social justice, and a tireless supporter of the arts and free expression. Silas has passed, but the imprint left by his considerable life will continue to excite and influence for generations to come.
