The Library / Arts Alliance was founded by M.C. Gardner. M.C. Gardner is a Realtor and author. He directs 10% of any Real Estate or authorial transaction to the institutions mentioned above.
Gardner, has written a series of books on the American visionary and poet Walt Whitman. Whitman enjoyed little formal education. His extensive knowledge was impressively deep and extensively mined from the public libraries and book depositories of Long Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Washington D.C. His aesthetic world was further broadened by his exploration of opera, photography, literature, drama & painting during the middle years of the 19th century. This depth of Knowledge and range of artistic acuity is explored as major biographical subtext in the two volumes of Gardner’s Whitman’s Code: A New Bible.
Beneficiaries on the national level include the Smithsonian Institution and National Public Radio, New York’s Metropolitan Opera and the Walt Whitman Archive. Closer to home are neighborhood and university libraries and local classical musical radio stations who also enjoy the benefits of a “Take Ten” donation from The Library / Arts Alliance
The requisite tax forms are provided by the participating libraries and artistic endeavors.
