“There is no better indicator of the spiritual health of our city, its neighborhoods and the larger region than the state of the arts. The arts deepen our understanding of the human spirit, extend our capacity to comprehend the lives of others, allow us to imagine a more just and humane world. Through their diversity of feeling, their variety of form, their multiplicity of inspiration, the arts make our culture richer and more reflective.”
These words spoken by Jonathan Fanton, of the MacArthur Foundation, eloquently describe the arts and their far reaching impact on the whole of society. More Info >
