importance of the arts in the life of a community is
undeniable. The arts encourage imagination, participation,
contemplation and reflection, give us a view of the future,
link us to the past, express emotion and feeling, open new
avenues of communication and enhance learning. The arts
enrich our everyday lives and define us as a great
community. Sybil Harrington truly believed this and she was
