The Flying Lady is back with a new kidney
at a new internet home!

Actually, she never went away. Established in 1981, she went incognito in the late 1990s as David L. Rosenbloom Handcrafted, Custom Furniture & Cabinetry. For the last twelve years, United Arts has been David's parent company while he created beautiful custom furniture for clients all over California. Last year, on August 7, 2008, David received a kidney transplant after six years on dialysis - a momentous event - and although he continued to work during those difficult years, he recently decided to hang up his hammer and safety goggles and devote his full-time efforts to educating kidney patients and advocating for health care reform.

His recently published biography, Becoming Me (on amazon now), details his seven year battle with end-stage kidney disease, dialysis and a successful transplant. Read about it and David’s other activities as a consultant on kidney patient education and compliance issues concerning dialysis and kidney transplantation.

UNITED ARTS originated as a professional marketing service with in-depth experience in the performing arts, founded in 1981 by Linda Chiavaroli, a former journalist and experienced public relations and marketing executive. Two years later, she moved her base from New York to Los Angeles. In 1985, her husband, David L. Rosenbloom (yes, the very same expert woodworker) brought his in-depth knowledge of corporate communications, advertising and sales promotion to the firm as co-principal.

The partners were married in 1970 shortly after David left law school for the corporate world, where he began his lifelong passion for graphic design, printing and photography. For the next fifteen years, he successfully climbed the corporate ladder, ultimately spending seven years as head of public and investor relations for Sybron Corp., a Fortune 500 company then headquartered in Rochester, NY. In 1997 David took a relatively new hobby, woodworking, into a fulltime business designing and building custom furniture and cabinetry, thereby starting a subsidiary of United Arts.

Linda began her journalism career with the Gannett Co., Inc. where she was dance and theater critic and feature writer for Gannett's flagship paper. In 1974 she expanded her horizons by joining the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra as its marketing director. After seven years there, she launched United Arts, which represented arts organizations such as the internationally known Garth Fagan Dance company.

In 1983, tired of the snow and lack of sun in Upstate New York, the couple moved to Los Angeles and together grew United Arts, which after a successful 21-year run resulted in Linda being recruited by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission as its director of communications, where she remains today.

And so United Arts is back and morphing again. Stay on-line for further developments . . .
