So what is it that really ties us together? In crisis, which the arts are no stranger to, I am often revived by feedback from the field that reinforces the value not only of the arts to society at large, but how it finds a truly unique way to bind us together.
Emotionally and spiritually–in friendship as colleagues–by shared experiences and challenges. And always by the art on our stages, in our music halls, on our pages, vessels, canvases, and now on our digital computer screens. With thread, sand, clay, paint, instruments of all sorts including our voices, and video cameras.
Hang in there New Jersey arts community. Better days are yet to come, and we ARE bound together rather tightly. All thoughts are welcome!
