COGNIZART AT A GLANCE
In 1993, Niel DePonte, Executive Artistic Director, founded MetroArts Inc. in response to his concern over what he saw as diminishing resources devoted to arts education in the public schools. Since then, MetroArts Inc. has established Cognizart and moved the educational agenda in Oregon and SW Washington towards the idea that the arts are necessary to the education of the whole child.
