A word from the President...
“I am honored to be a part of the Gainesville Arts & Parks Foundation! As the board president, one of my goals is to do more cross communication with arts organizations and the technology community to showcase some of what Gainesville can become.
As a young person growing up in Florida, I spent hours practicing the cello. The hard work gave me a deep appreciation for the arts that I still carry today. Now, I am spending many hours volunteering for the newly formed Gainesville Arts &Parks (GAP) Foundation so that future generations can develop the same appreciation for the arts, play and nature that I have.”
-Agapitus “Augi” Lye, President
