WHY DO THE ARTS MATTER?

Ever wonder what members of the Dona Ana Arts Council think about art? While not all of us are artist (although we can boast that many of us are), we all share a steadfast appreciation and understanding that the arts are essential to developing our local community and culture. Art connects us, inspires us, and gives our children better tools to learn and change the world around us.

Art is a language that helps us to communicate.

They are an extension of me.

Without art humans would turn into barbarians. Observing art lifts our souls and inspires us to strive for the highest state of being. Creating art exposes our thoughts and connects us to the rest of earth's in habitants.
