GDUSA STARTS EACH YEAR BY CHOOSING A GROUP OF PEOPLE TO WATCH WHO EMBODY THE SPIRIT OF THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY.

Individuals we have come to know and respect for a combination of talent, leadership, success, newsworthiness and community service. In a field so deep in talent and broad in numbers, this is clearly a subjective process. Still, for five decades, it has seemed to work out pretty well: the roster of past participants is star-studded, to say the least. The 2017 group adds to the glow.
