Mission Statement

To Build Communities Through The Power Of The Arts It is our MISSION to expand and inspire arts & cultural opportunities for people of all ages. It is our VISION to serve alone and as an active partner with organizations (public and private) and individuals, in pursuit of advancing arts opportunities for all. We wish to be an encouraging model for new and emerging arts groups as well as individual artists and teachers; We wish to foster self-actualizing experiences and employment for artists, to stimulate their creative production and success in the world. We wish to inspire youth, by building an understanding and appreciation for their own creative voices to become engaged, well-rounded human beings. And we wish to engage the public in original art acts, and arts experiences that draw them closer to the world of art and the stories of our lives.
