We are writing to invite you to support the energetic role of art and literature in these difficult times. Throughout this season, we’ve been reflecting on how the arts have taught us to comprehend and perceive. More than just another lens through which to look, they’ve been a prism, a means of seeing more deeply. To see through the lens of art is to flush from the deep undergrowth of the self some thought, feeling, comprehension, question or music you didn’t know was in you, or in the world. It instructs us how to relax; how to pay attention, not just to the notes but the silences amid the notes. This is true for discovering some newness of the emotions or uncovering new ideas—which is essentially the mission of the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. That indeed is an enormous idea. Please join us!!
