Why Support the Arts?
The arts are for everyone! They inspire, educate, entertain, document and comment on the pulse of the day. The arts nurture our need for beauty, respond to our sense of aethetics, energize our creativity, stimulate our minds and hearts, engage us in discussion, deepen our perspective, enable our expression and give order and meaning to our lives. A vibrant and successful city - one that is world class with a strong sense of community - is one in which the arts flourish and inspire. Art programs and events make a difference to those considering where to live, and also attract visitors, add jobs, and bring business to our community.
