Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhane Wallis, and filmmaker Will Gluck visited Northport Elementary on Wednesday afternoon (September 10) in Minneapolis, MN where they met the first-through-fifth graders and worked with students preparing to audition for their school production of Annie.

The initiative kicked off Turnaround Arts, a signature program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities which works with local program partners to provide intensive arts education resources to clusters of high-poverty schools across the country, leading to increases in attendance, academic achievement, and student engagement.

“Arts education is a way to make a real difference in the lives of kids everywhere.  Being involved with the arts certainly changed my life, and I’ve seen that engagement change the lives of many others” said Jamie.
