Art makes us smart. It makes us feel. It has the power to connect us to each other in ways we could not possibly imagine. Art has the power to incite change for the better. The importance of increasing funding for the arts, or even sustaining it, has been completely removed from the public discourse at present, despite its value to our humanity. Individual donors have stepped in to help keep arts organizations like ours creating and thriving. Your generous support makes a huge impact on our programming. Please consider joining us.
