Light Up Our World Event A Success!
It was cold. It was raining all day. Participants still came and enjoyed the artworks, art activities, music, and dance. By 6:00 pm, there was a break in the rain and more than 800 participants picked up luminary lanterns and went outside for the candle-lighting public arts performance. It started to rain again. That did not stop us - we stood together and formed a heart in solidarity for the arts, for arts education, for artistic expression – one of the greatest freedoms we have.
