"Seriously, I feel like art can save lives. Here in Spokane, everywhere. This is why supporting the Spokane Symphony and The Corbin Art Center and The Mac and Terrain and Ink Spokane and public libraries (which allow free public access to all sort of arts programming) and Spokane Arts and Window Dressing and local galleries and The Bartlett and any other arts venue/group you can think of is so important: It benefits everyone. It makes Spokane more peaceful, more compassionate. Art is a way we communicate with one another, and it's thrilling to be a part of the conversation here locally."
