July 4, 2010: As a broadcast television and film director and stage actor myself for more than 30 years, I have marveled at portrayals of legendary characters by many great performers. From Hal Holbrook reenacting Mark Twain, to Gary Senise as Harry S. Truman, and Charlton Heston portraying Moses. Art Yeaman stands in their stellar ranks as a performer who can reach into history and bring back to vivid life the very essence of a great character from America's past. I feel honored anytime I get to see Art weave his historical magic! - Clayton Vandiver
He’s one of the best in the business. Dr. Shirley Hammond Education Director - George Bush Presidential Library & Museum, Texas A&M, College Station, Texas
Raleigh, North Carolina Chapter Society of the Sons of the American Revolution: Your fine portrayal of Benjamin Franklin really came alive for our audience. I heard many compliments on your performance and know my membership loved you and your character. Thanks for making our celebration a memorable event. I enjoyed participating on the following evening as your personal Continental Color Guard escorts during that grand entrance into the Cameron Village Library exhibition of "Benjamin Franklin: In search of a Better World". Respectfully, Glenn Sappie Sons of the American Revolution Raleigh, N.C.

When Dr. Ben Franklin walks into the room, his historic past follows close behind. Citizens of all ages are compelled to listen and learn as he weaves a tapestry of tales of times past. Old Kings Elementary School, Bunnell, Florida
