It isn't enough to say we "need" the humanities because we ARE the humanities. They are gifts to us from our predecessors, ancestors, and contemporaries. They represent the imagination, [the] innovative, and ask us to think deeply—as the greatest philosophers and artists have always asked us for the last 2,500 years—about our experience, and to think beyond the various intellectually lazy forms of ideology circulating in America today.

Logos and text for media and program partners.

Logos and Text for Media and Program Partners

Please use one of the following logo files when publicizing our work:

EPS files allow you to change the size of the image without distorting it. JPEG files, while not as versatile, often work better for websites, email, and some design programs.

Do not use the logo with tagline if the text is too small to read or when our logo appears alongside other organizations' logos.
