"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

A walk in the woods, a life-long career, an emotional struggle…each of these things could be “along the path.” Reflect and remind yourself of your path. Where will you go and what will you see that inspires you. Whether your journey is artistic, emotional, physical or geographical, share with us your exploration.
