The arts reflect your community
The arts create, celebrate, and preserve the cultural history of your community so that future generations can understand and appreciate what you did and who you were. The arts are the legacy of any society and they teach what we know about past civilizations.
The arts help your community
Beyond bringing pure enjoyment and excitement to everyday lives, the arts:
- Create opportunities for productive activities that engage and motivate young people, both in school and in their leisure time.
- Enrich the lives of the elderly, homebound, and disabled by offering participation in arts programs.
- Bring together all ages, races, and economic levels of people to celebrate beauty and creativity.
The arts are an investment in your community and help business
- A prominent theater in the neighborhood prompts restaurants to open and provides evening business for local shops and transportation.
- The blockbuster concert, play, or exhibit at the local theatre brings people into the community from miles around who spend money on all kinds of services.
- The rich artistic life of the community convinces a business that is concerned about the quality of life of its employees to locate there.
- The arts employ people, buy services, and attract tourists.
