A message from the Executive Director—
“Humanity forges a new path.” “Space still is the new frontier.” “A new-found affinity for masks, they aren’t just for masquerades anymore.” “Zoom is not just a riff from ‘Pitch Perfect.’”
I have lists and lists of these headline leads from 2020. Honestly, though, I’m through with looking back. It is time to look forward. As we do, we see the opportunity to create a more equitable and empathetic experience through the arts. That is why we are “thinking bigger” (mantra from my time with Famous Dave). Inspiration is everywhere. And we are utilizing inspiration to think bigger (and actually better).
Ideas for art in your everyday:
The great Grace Lee Bogs once said, “Revolution is EVOLUTION towards something much grander in terms of what it means to be a human being.” Isn’t that the truth! We hope revolution leads you to new places and perspectives within your future. This journey is ours together and we sure hope to hear what has changed, where you’ve grown and what is now most important.
Please consider helping us prepare for what you need in the “after time” of the pandemic keeping our physical doors closed. The power of the visual arts and art education is in fueling evolution, connecting us to heal, and learning new ways of being.
