Let Your Voice Be Heard!
The City Commission will be holding a special meeting this Tuesday, July 31st at 6pm to be held at City Hall (the former Federal Courthouse on Elizabeth street, acorss the Majestic Mall.)
Whatever your opinions or passions about the $2 fee may be, this is an opportunity for your voice to be heard and to become civically enaged in policy that is impacting the local arts community.
Obviously, this proposal is bringing the art community into the public eye and I think that whatever the decision may be on Tuesday, the art community must remember that we are ONE community and that if don't always agree with one another, we should always remain interested in one another and to learn from one another. In the end, isn't our common interest art; our love and passion for art and wanting to share it with others? If we want support from our Brownsville residents, be it in the form of funding from a $2 fee or higher attendance at programs or more benefactors of local artists, then I think it vital that the public view the art community as a strong and active force with a common interest in mind.
So again, I encourage you to attend the special City Commission meeting this Tuesday to let your voice be heard!
