A Word of Thanks

Friends and Artists,

As we kick off the holiday season, we are reflecting on all those things for which we are thankful; the overall health and safety of our community, our dedicated staff and board who remain focused on our mission, and the ongoing support of our donors, volunteers, and readers. Thank you for rooting for us – We wouldn’t have made it this far without you!

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

On behalf of the whole SWCA family, have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
