Bold Communities Have Art

Empowering a community to change requires shaking the status quo. Change is exactly that, deviating from what has been into something different.

Art does that for us individually, as a people, as a culture.

I think, one way to revitalize, re-energize, to change Lexington Park would be to invite in the artists. Other communities across the country and in Maryland have made conscious, economic decisions to do that and have reaped great financial benefits.

Being an artist is risky. Being an entrepreneur is risky. Change is risky. But great benefits can be derived for not only the risk-taker, but the entire community.
