They value the arts not only as an aesthetic expression of the human experience, but also as a tool that empowers all people and instills community pride.
Through the arts,
we all hope to build bridges that span racial, cultural and ethnic divisions.
With these goals in mind the Museum’s Public Programming
embraces all cultural art forms.
