What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?

"For me, enhancing visual arts in San Diego is about building a supportive, appreciative community for artists and their work. This would include more dialogue, more curators, more exhibition spaces, including non-traditional, guerrilla-style exhibition spaces, more thoughtful writing about the arts, more partnerships between institutions, universities and presenters, and more connection to community. Our city of villages and large county make it difficult to connect the region's talented artists to broad audiences. We need more hubs, both geographical and virtual, to build audiences and community."
