With the rapid decline of art programs being offered in inner city public schools, New York native and visual artist Danny Simmons stepped up to help fill that rapidly widening void. In this installment of Pass the Bucket from Vans Off the Wall, we get a glimpse at the roots of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation that was created through Simmons’ efforts, and his two brothers, Russell and Joseph (Rev. Run of RUN-DMC). The foundation lives to provide the urban poor and underprivileged with opportunities to access the arts and exhibit their own work.
