He was explaining that although the evening's program celebrating the dancer Matthew Rushing was the kind of event usually given to a retiring artist, Mr. Rushing is not retiring yet.

When Matthew Rushing was a young boy growing up in Inglewood, Calif., his mother was concerned he might fall prey to the gang violence that plagued the area. So she signed him up for an afterschool arts program.

He reaches out as if to become the horizon, or maybe to remind us that he is the lord of it.
