“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” ~Edwin Way Teale Lately is seems every second someone is asking me a question. Big ones, little ones, quick ones, and generally I can offer a nice, clear answer and make way for the next one. However, last week, one question caused me to pause longer than usual and it still has me spinning a bit. It was an “easy” one that I have answered a hundred times over the last year. “Why do the arts matter?” Usually if you ask me this question, I might encourage you to take a seat and get comfy because it’s going to take me some time to get through the thousand and one reasons why the arts matter. But this time, it was different. My pause was way too long and my answer seriously vague. The friend asking me the question looked at me with blank eyes and a tight grin, and I knew then that I had missed the mark. I didn’t give her an answer she could relate to so I lost her. I walked away, stunned at my miss, and feeling like I had let her and our community down. And then I asked myself a question “why was that question so hard to answer this time”? And my answer to myself was immediate “because my perspective on the arts has changed more than I could have ever imagined and I simply don’t have the right words to express it yet.” Why? Because over the last year, I’ve connected personally to the arts on a much deeper level, mostly by bearing witness to how the arts change lives and by watching the joy that comes to others when they create. Suddenly, the arts feel very important to me. It’s a desperate feeling because I know how much they really do matter to the quality of our daily life. Not because of the statistics that point to brighter children who become more productive adults, not because of the compelling numbers that illustrate the $2.3 million impact the Center has on our local economy, not because of the power of the arts to create a creative workforce to ensure a stronger future for our country, and not because we know that our world would be a big blank slate without the beauty that comes from the arts. No, I believe the arts matter because by engaging in them, we learn more about ourselves and ultimately one another. When we connect with one another, there a no limits to what we can do together. Fall is the time to gather together. This season we invite you to join us as we Fall for the Arts. Whatever that might mean to you. Fall for the work of a new artist, fall for a new filmmaker, fall for jewelry making or digital design. Fall for ballet or literature. Just simply allow yourself to fall. There are so many things happening at the Center! September 23 marks the beginning of the fall season, and by design, marks the opening of our newest exhibition, FLAUNT: 25, which features 25 artists in 25 places for 25 days to commemorate our 25th anniversary in the East Side School building. We’ve also partnered with South Arts to bring to town Independent Filmmakers for a six month journey through the art of film. October is National Arts and Humanities month and we hope you will join us, along with Americans for the Arts, as we host Creative Conversations. This grassroots event is designed to bring emerging community leaders and thought leaders together, to elevate the profile of the arts in our community. In November, you can count on a spectacular Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival that is bigger than ever with the works of over 74 of the best sporting and wildlife artists our country has to offer. On top of that, we’re unveiling a new adult artist studio and introducing several new classes for children. So go ahead, ask me the question when you see me. “Why do the arts matter?”. I’m ready this time. After I answer the question, I’ll then tell you that I have this vision of an entire community that has completely fallen for the arts and together created a wonderful place for our children and grandchildren to experience a rich and meaningful life right here in Thomasville, Georgia.
