Ilona Sochynsky is a prolific fine and commercial artist and educator. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and Yale University School of Art, Sochynsky has been exhibiting her works in a multiplicity of media since the early 1980s in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Maryland and Rhode Island. She owns a design firm specializing in corporate communications and has taught as an adjunct professor at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and Atlantic Cape Community College. Her work is held in many private collections around the country.

Sochynsky's most recent work in abstraction marks a progression from her roots in hyper-realism and has generated critical accolades from ARTnews. She has also notably completed a collaboration with the Noyes Museum of Art as well as a large public mural project entitled The Fishing Pier which is located at the corner of Arctic and Mississippi Avenues in Atlantic City.

Dante Hall Theater of the Arts is an intimate, 243-seat theater located adjacent to St. Michael's Church in the heart of Atlantic City's Ducktown neighborhood which seeks to continue serving Atlantic City and the surrounding communities as a vital cultural center. Dante Hall presents a diverse range of professional and amateur musical and theatrical performances throughout the year including a special Family Series geared towards a broad audience. The theater also offers free programs for Atlantic City school children and has participated in outreach to various community organizations.

Funding for Dante Hall programs has been provided in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts/Department of State through the Local Arts Development Grant Program administered by the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
