Volunteer Appreciation

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in. ~ Author Unknown

Today, over 600 dedicated arts supporters from across the United States have come together in Washington, D.C. for the 31st annual Arts Advocacy Day: The National Arts Action Summit — the only national event that brings together a broad cross section of America's cultural and civic organizations. These arts advocates represent a united effort to tell Capitol Hill how important the arts are to our communities, how much arts education means to our children, and how the arts improve our daily lives. Over 85 National Partner organizations have helped us shape this united arts message to Congress. You don't need to be in Washington, D.C. today to take action! Click here to reach your legislators, local newspapers and engage via social media.

Meet artists Guy Coheleach and Geoffrey Smith as they are encouraged to talk about their life, art, travels and more with moderator, Nerissa Okiye, Martin County's Director of Tourism.
