It's been a hard year. Give yourself a gift of art.

The FREE gifts in this catalog were created for you by Brandeis students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends with support from Arts Engagement.

We believe that art can support community care, and that making art can guide us in making sense of our lives.

Generosity is an expression of caring, as is the joy of gratitude.

On behalf of the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts at Brandeis, we invite Brandeis students, alumni, faculty, and staff to claim one FREE gift of their choice.
