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

"My vision for San Diego in the near future is to see projects where all the professional visual arts establishments can come together as a united front to demonstrate the strength of the visual arts in our region to the region, state, country and world. It is only by encouraging the population at large to support culture by buying art that we can all thrive. "
