We had a lovely time at the University Heights Fall Fest today. The weather tried to cooperate occasionally, and everyone made the most of it - the "This Art is for The Birds" performance was fantastic, we did loads of pumpkin decorating, and squeezed in a little chalk drawing. But the best part was seeing all the people, especially the children, representing the beauty and diversity of our wonderful community. Standing side by side in the cold and rain, the only care in the world was to create something that brought them joy and to admire lovely works others created, too. This was a good day. We hope to see everyone again at next year's Fall Fest. Next up... PEACE Pops on Oct. 27th from 6-9. For more info or to RSVP: fb.me/e/2RwhLx1G3. ... See MoreSee Less
These latest numbers clearly show that non-profit arts organizations in Cuyahoga County have a huge economic impact in their local communities. For us personally, what stood out in this article were these two bullet points:
- 88.4% of respondents agreed that the activity or venue they were attending was “a source of neighborhood pride for the community."
- 86.2% said they would “feel a sense of loss if that activity or venue was no longer available.”
