|Happy New Year from the Iowa Cultural Corridor Alliance! January is an exciting time to look forward to what 2013 will bring. As we begin a happy and healthy new year, I encourage you to include the arts in your resolutions. The arts are a defining feature of every great community, and we are fortunate to have an abundance of arts and culture opportunities in Iowa’s Creative Corridor. Be a part of that! |
Include a resolution to consume more culture in 2013. You’ll be glad you did! Make it a point to visit your local museums, galleries, theaters, dance companies and music venues. Better yet, sign up for an annual membership or subscription. You’ll receive discounts and more importantly, you’ll help support an organization that adds value to your community and enriches your life. Many cultural institutions offer special opportunities to learn, to participate and to make the world a better place. The arts not only educate and entertain, but they help us to better understand ourselves and others.
On CulturalCorridor.org you will find 150+ arts and culture organizations you can connect with, as well as a full calendar of events to attend in 2013. Well, what are you waiting for? Get started today!
