Artful Patrons

“The arts are fundamental to our humanity. They enable and inspire us – fostering creativity, goodness, and beauty. The arts bring us joy, help us express our values, and build bridges between cultures. The arts are also a fundamental component of a healthy community – strengthening them socially, educationally and economically – benefits that persist even in difficult social and economic times.”
Americans for the Arts

“Arts and cultural organizations are engines of community development and community cohesion.”
“Arts Vibrancy Index Report V; Hotbeds of American’s Arts and Culture” August 2019. SMU DataArts, National Center for Arts Research
