The Providence Sunday Journal today has my extensive look at the impact of the arts on the state economy -- not to mention the culture and overall quality of life. When it comes to the arts, it's damn good here, folks. Damn good. Let's take a moment and celebrate this gift and the people behind it.
The page-one design, stories and photos look better in the hard copy, and I recommend you get one, but here is a link to the main story.
And here is a link to the sidebar about AS220, the internationally recognized arts organization that Bert Crenca built.
Today's package is the latest installment in the year-long (and already award-winning) Journal series, Reinvent Rhode Island. In my many years at the paper, I have not been involved in many projects that have been this worthy -- and fun.
