Art For Art’s Sake

Elizabeth-VerdowA long-time Detroit area art teacher left quite a gift to the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). After a long teaching career, Elizabeth Verdow spent another 19 years volunteering at the DIA’s gift shop.  This sweet and quiet lady told the staff that she had left a gift for the DIA in her will.  She failed to mention that the gift was $1.71 million!  By investing wisely and living frugally, this lovely lady was able to leave a gift that will help make the arts available to her community for some time to come.
