The primary purpose of this Foundation is to promote and support fine arts, including education and appreciation, as well as to promote and support the commercial arts of advertising and graphic design. Through this fund, scholarships or program fees for La Porte County residents are granted to individuals for the pursuit of education in the area of fine arts or the commercial arts. In addition grants may be made to organizations presenting programs that will educate or promote the arts as described above. It is intended that these grants will be made annually.
Mr. Landsman, a local artist and advertising executive, was known for his own creativity and his ability to inspire and encourage creative growth in those that knew and worked with him throughout his life. This Foundation’s aim is to continue that inspiration for the people of La Porte County who wish to pursue fulfillment in the creative arts.
This foundation was created to perpetuate the memory of Dale E. Landsman and to honor and promote his love for the arts.
