Art is the highest form of hope

Make a year end gift today!


Humans have always turned to the arts in times of need.
To tell stories, leave our mark, overcome pain, and console us.
To celebrate. To stand together. To enact change.

Art is born from hardship.
Art helps us make sense
of challenging times.
Art brings us comfort,
color, and connection.

Art, often, is the answer.

Sometimes it’s the only way to communicate—
an emotion, an event, an idea or a question.
It binds us. It is the ultimate expression of perseverance
and a foundational element of the human spirit.

The arts are working overtime in every community,
household, and family, doing what they do best:
connecting us, giving us needed moments of joy, and,
most of all, creating hope for a better future—
no matter your background.
