We love art and we support the local artists from our community. We care for our local artists because our life gets better with them around. Local artists add more than just pretty pictures to our community. They have the passion for making it a better place to live, through their artwork. Artists bring cultural diversity, they provide entertainment, add value by attracting people to gathering spots, they expose culture, contribute to a positive mood and bring new ideas to people.
