Americans for the Arts Talk at Greenbelt

Randy Cohen, Vice-President of Research & Policy of Americans for the Arts, the nationwide arts advocacy organization joined the Greenbelt Museum and the Greenbelt community at the Old Greenbelt Theatre for a presentation Wednesday, March 13. We were delighted that he came to Greenbelt to share information about how the arts can create a more vibrant and economically viable community. Cohen makes presentations across the United States to emphasize the importance of the arts and arts programs to communities large and small. He notes that "the arts are a fundamental component of healthy communities--strengthening them socially, educationally, and economically."

For more information about the arts advocacy work of Americans for the Arts, please visit the Americans for the Arts website:
