For nearly 40 years, KD Dids, Inc. has been a leader in the knit apparel design and manufacturing industry which produces over 100 billion dollars in sales annually. Initially focused on producing functional premium dance apparel, the brand quickly gained national praise with high demands and top tier partnerships with global industry leaders. By the early 2000s, KD Dance became the US’s leading source for unique knit garments for the dance and professional arts. With its focused knits-only manufacturer position, KD continued to pushed the boundaries of knits with the development of the signature ballet neck top, leg warmers, wrap tops/dresses, faux mesh sweaters and vegetable kashmere which have all been top sellers and featured garments nationwide. KD is an African American owned company founded by former Oakland Ballet dancer David Lee.
Whether you preferred classical music (New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, The New York Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein) or opera (Marian Anderson, Placido Domingo, Jerome Hines), ballet (Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, The New Jersey Ballet Company) or piano virtuosos (Victor Borge, Van Cliburn), rock ‘n roll (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones) or R&B (Aretha Franklin, The Temptations), gospel (James Cleveland, Kirk Franklin) or songs from the Great American Songbook (Judy Garland, Tony Bennett), anyone and everyone has performed at Newark Symphony Hall.
And despite the historic facility falling on hard times during the late 20th Century, artists continued to tread the boards of our grand stage, delighting audiences far and wide. In the last 50 years, one could have seen Gladys Knight, The O’Jays, Richard Pryor, Queen Latifah, Dick Gregory, Marilia Mendonca, Vice Ganda, Beverly Sills, Patti LaBelle, Robert Merrill and Leontyne Price command a packed house in that anchor institution of Newark's Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation (Rush Arts) is dedicated to providing underserved youth with contemporary art education, and developing and supporting artists, curators, and new audiences.
Rush was founded in 1995 by three brothers: Danny Simmons, a visual artist and community builder; media mogul Russell Simmons; and Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons of the legendary hip-hop group Run-DMC. Their goal was to fill the gap that the disenfranchised and people of color faced in both accessing the arts and exhibition opportunities.
In 2017, Danny Simmons expanded the nonprofit with Rush Arts Philadelphia in the Logan section of the City of Brotherly Love and with the support of Legacy Business Advisors, Danny Simmons has forged a number of partnerships with esteemed Philadelphia arts institutions including the Barnes Foundation, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the African American Museum in Philadelphia among others.
