I realized recently that we don't budget to buy art. Yet, that doesn't mean there is no appreciation. I've always loved the smell of a new box of crayons or "messing with the media" trying new tools. I like the feel of clay in my hands. I can neither imagine making a living from art or living without art. I've seen art transform the lives of children and keep them coming to school when they wanted to quit.
We love live music and are grateful to artists willing to share their gifts at concerts in our parks, for museums and galleries that open their doors to share the works of others.
