In Community with Art

Last weekend I was in Grand Junction, Colorado.  This was my first visit and I was struck by how much the city embraces and supports arts.  Sculptures of all kinds can be found along Main Street.  Some sculpture pedestals had posters with poetry written by grade school children.  Did I say amazing poetry?  It was!  The combination of visual and written art was powerful.  Read and see more here.

 I am so grateful to Grand Junction for their understanding of the importance of the arts and for publicly promoting art!  What would it be like if your city and mine did the same?

    Marcia, I used to teach in Grand Junction when I worked for CDOT and always loved the downtown area. Loved the poem you shared!
