please read. This year's theme for For the Love of Art is embracing community.
I began Volunteering here at the Art Center of Plano during the week of the Kinsey Collection Exhibition. For all of you who came to see it you know that the small portion of their collection that was selected was from the Harlem Renaissance, 100 years ago this year. This year's theme for For the Love of Art is embracing community. And I can tell you that since I started working here at the Art Center of Plano I have never felt more embraced by a community. Here at the Art Center I can be exactly who I am, an artist. I don't have to be ashamed of it or hide it I can celebrate it, just other African American artists during that time. I am very greatful for the opportunity I have had to be apart of this community.
