"Instill and Inspire outlines the [Hewitt's] rich cultural life and includes reflections by three other influential collector couples including Nancy and Milton Washington of Pittsburgh. A thorough and insightful essay by Grace Stanislaus, director of the National Black Arts Festival, establishes the significance of the Hewitts' contribution--and that of African-American artists in general--within the context of American cultural, art and political history ... a major step toward ensuring the legacy of the artists presented."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"We are an excellent example that you do not have to be rich to love art, to collect art. We mentored other people who were starting their collections. I can't begin to tell you how proud and pleased we are to have young people come up to me and say, 'Mrs. Hewitt, you've inspired me. I'm starting to collect.' And I tell them, 'Don't hesitate. Just do it. Just start.'"
--Vivian Davidson Hewitt
