arts day 2015On May 20, Mecklenburg County art supporters will come together with hundreds of other NC citizens for ARTS Day 2015, a united effort to tell our state legislators in Raleigh how significant the arts are in our community.

Please consider joining us in our advocacy efforts.  For more information on the event, visit: www.artsnc.org.

If you cannot come to Raleigh on May 20, you can take part in ARTS Day by sending an email to your state legislator that addresses:

  • Increasing N.C. Arts Council grants funding, which helps ASC provide neighborhood/community and individual artist project grants, and
  • Securing Senate passage of H138, requiring one credit in the arts for high school graduation.

Sending this message to your legislator should take you no more than 2 minutes. We urge you to send an e-mail today to coincide with our visit to Raleigh-emphasizing the importance of arts and culture in Mecklenburg County.
