WHY DONATE TO OVAL? WHY ARE THE ARTS IMPORTANT?
It is proven that the arts help individuals, communities, and Kentucky thrive. Study after study proves the positive effect of the arts on a community and those who reside in and visit that community. From economic improvement and development to cognitive development in students and young adults, the arts play a significant role across the board. The arts impact each and every one of us every day, even if it is not in obvious and apparent ways. Arts and culture promote understanding and action on issues facing our communities and the world, as well as form curiosity and conversation.
The arts diversify economies and communities, in turn improving the overall quality of life. The arts enhance the community in several ways including, but not limited to, the places we live, work, and play. The arts allow inspiration to be born in individuals, organizations, and companies. Overall, the positive impact of the arts is so important to our organization and our community. Thank you for supporting OVAL and the visual arts in Henderson, KY.
