The Arts matter. They benefit individuals and communities. Every day, SAA members see how the arts can make a difference in their communities. Here are some of their stories.
We are always looking for examples of the various, important impacts our members have. These stories can be very helpful with our advocacy efforts. If you have a story to share, please contact Reed Langen (email@example.com) SAA Communications and Outreach Officer.
