Children need the Arts to succeed. Just like children need good nutrition on a daily basis, children need a daily serving of the arts. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts increases test scores and promotes academic achievement. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we support the community’s children through exposure to art, as the funding for education programs continue to shrink.
“If one child benefits from the Museum, it will all be worthwhile.”
