Arts Give Back

Good for the soul, great for the economy

The legislative session has begun and the next two years of state arts funding are on the line! We want legislators to know that “When you support the arts the Arts Give Back!”
You can help in two ways:
1. Contact your legislator today!  And tell them how the “Arts Give Back.”
2. Spread the word to legislators and the public about how the “Arts Give Back” using the downloadable tools, programs ads and social media images below.
