If you've ever enjoyed a performance by any of the local arts groups as an audience member; if you have ever had an emotional response to a painting or to a theatrical production; if you have ever felt an epiphany from an experience with something artistic, whether it changed your life or just improved your day; if you have seen the expression on a child's face coming face to face with something artistic that cannot be explained in a government report, you know the importance of art in our every-day lives.
Tuesday morning at 11:00, there will be a rally in the State Capitol Rotunda in support of supporting the arts in Pennsylvania, organized by Citizens for the Arts. You can read their notice about it here.
Let's hope the steps aren't empty tomorrow morning!
