I've known several of the board members and outreach coordinator for years, and 2010 was certainly a pinnacle year for GAAC. I am especially impressed with the new Contemporaries program which encourages 20-30 somethings to get more involved in the arts community. I have had the pleasure of attending several events, and look forward to many more in the new year! GAAC events and info remain visible on Facebook, but I would like to see a more user friendly website, perhaps more interactive with photos.
