I have been working with CAA for a few years now - what I love most about it are the people. I've met some wonderful, creative and talented men and women who have become friends and colleagues. Supporting local artists and bringing more art and creative experiences to our community is so important to me! Being part of CAA has also afforded me the opportunity to build great relationships with our city leadership, local businesses and other local nonprofits. Art matters!
