The arts mean business. That is the message being delivered by West Valley Arts Council, which led efforts in data collection for the Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6) study in partnership with Americans for the Arts.
Cultural and artistic expression was on display March 11 as people from throughout the Valley convened in Surprise to share their talents at the IMPRINT Festival, featuring dancers, musicians and artists of all ages.
On Saturday July 8, the West Valley Arts Council hosted One Step Beyond Fine Arts Program participants and opened an exhibit of their art at the WVAC Arts HQ Gallery in Surprise, Arizona.
The exhibit will be on display until Friday, Aug. 5.
In observance of Black History Month and in recognition of the contributions African American artists have made in the community and the greater culture, West Valley Arts Council will present its newest exhibition, Imprint: African Americans in the Arts.
