The health of a society can be gauged by its support of the arts. Arts and culture-related industries, “creative industries,” provide direct economic benefits to states and communities as they create jobs, attract investments, generate tax revenues, and stimulate local economies through tourism and consumer purchases.

Even more important,the arts provide an opportunity to observe, express, and celebrate the individual passion, commitment, and uniqueness of ourselves while strengthening the social bonds that bring us together.

A vibrant arts environment is not only dependent on artists and patrons, but also on individuals who generously share and donate their skill, special abilities, and time, in support of the arts.

Add something interesting, profound, and joyful to your life. Become an Arts Volunteer.
