“The arts provide opportunities for children to risk trying new things. That risk is a primary indicator of future success because it builds curiosity.”
– Carol Terry

“Now more than ever, we need activities that move us, motivate us, and stimulate our thinking. Our children need them too.”
– Matthew Lynch, UBS

“The arts is truly one of the unique ways that we can celebrate ourselves – our community, our city, and each other. Not only do we celebrate it in the now, but we also honor the past.”
– Olivia Davis, Spectrum in Motion

“Artists, adventurous and courageous enough to build rooms of beauty for all of us, must be supported.”
– Brian Berry, Blum Shapiro
