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

"My vision for the future of our visual arts requires that we understand how important a sense of community is to acceptance and growth. I see a time when we will create opportunities for artists through more cooperative ventures like San Diego Loves Photography, a model successfully employed in Atlanta. We should endeavor to pool resources for month long events in painting, glass, sculpture, photography and the like and secure new venues for showing the work."
