piece by a local artist. ‘Buy Local Art’ is our Spring mantra,” enthuses Dinah Minot,
Executive Director.

reopening of society and the arts globally. It’s a reminder of the drive to create and how
humanity uses the arts to process trauma, and to heal. You can expect to see a mix of
emerging and established artists using a variety of mediums and interpretations on what
inspires resilience, what demonstrates resilience, and how resilience impacts life.
