Oran’s work with young people in our Arts Adventure Camps and After School Enrichment programs touched the lives of hundreds of children and their families. He was there with us when we were vagabonds, renting outdoor amphitheaters and creating nature themed adventures in story, music and movement. And he was there with us when we finally realized the dream of having a permanent artistic home, opening ArtSpace Falls Church during the height of the 2009 recession. It took a lot of dreaming to make that happen and to sustain Creative Cauldron through the first fragile and tentative years in our programming at ArtSpace.
Indeed, Oran brought passion and commitment to every artistic project that he worked on. He made a difference in so many lives and helped us launch a dream that continues to grow.
