Our director Vincent Kitch talks about preserving cultural space. Performance artworks illustrate how local artists are contributing to the discussion about our local waterways. Kelly Pajek joins the public art team. We invite you to join the statewide campaign celebrating and promoting arts education for Arts Education Month.
