Letter to Editor
We are privileged to live in a community with an incredible wealth of Art, Culture and Crafts. Our lives are richer as a result in a myriad of ways, direct and indirect. I am writing with a suggestion of how we can use this wealth to make our lives even better.
Most of us have friends who live not too far away who we see too infrequently who also appreciate the things we find so satisfying about living here. The Arts Council of Windham County has produced an attractive brochure that lists some of the signature arts and culture events during 2012, and organizations that have regular stellar events during the year.
The idea is that you look the list over, and if you see something that a friend from away would love to experience, invite that person for a weekend visit. You get a visit with ready-made entertainment (perhaps leading to some great conversations), you get to show off (and take some credit for) the excellence of your community, and you might even get taken out to one of our great restaurants.
This is called “Sharing the Arts” and can be a win-win-win for you, the arts, and our community.
The Brochure: “The Art Lover’s Guide to Arts Events in Windham County 2012” is available at the usual arts and tourist locations around the county, and also at WWW. ACWC.US. Pick up a copy and give it a look.
Share with your friends, engage with the arts, have a great time.
