Bringing The Future Into Focus

Friends and Artists,

In these past weeks we have been engaging in ongoing conversation with stakeholders, artists, and community leaders on how the arts bring value to our community. We heard so many enlightening ideas on how a new cultural arts center can rise to new challenges and embrace new opportunities! Though we face uncertain times today, we have all come together to inform the bigger picture on what comes next.

As we continue in this dialogue, we are committed to redefine what it means to experience great art and are deeply inspired by all the insights we’ve heard so far. With your voice, we can create a thriving destination that meets the needs of our artists, our visitors, and our community. In the coming weeks we will continue to engage our readers for your thoughts and ideas for this wonderful vision.

Thank you for helping us keep the arts accessible, thought-provoking, and vibrant. This journey is only made possible with the support and participation from readers like you! Together we can set the stage for a future where the arts are always growing and thriving. For more information about our mission, visit our website, or contact us at
