December 2022 Update

Dear Arts Patrons, Aficionados and Supporters,

The year is coming to a close and what a year it has been for the arts overall and Embracing Arlington Arts in particular. From the continuing battle with the pandemic to diversity goals to bringing patrons back to in-person events, artists and arts organizations have worked steadfastly all year to keep the arts alive and well! We urge our readers to support these organizations in any way you can – either buying a season subscription or purchasing a piece of art work or attending a concert to donating and any other ways. Your effort will be most appreciated during these continued challenging times for the industry.
