Keeping Art Alive

The strained economy is making it increasingly difficult for artists to consistently maintain reliable health insurance and continue working within the fine art field. It is important to raise awareness throughout local and national communities by helping others respect the fact that artists are individual contractors or sole proprietors who need support as equal as any other profession. Our community cannot afford to see a diminishment in creativity and art production. Throughout history art has played a pivotal role in life. It continues, as we should continue its advocation.
