A lot like Rodney Dangerfield, the arts don't get a lot of respect when it comes to economic development and dollars and sense.

This summer when you are out on vacation or simply taking a moment to relax, be sure to take the time and check out museums, art institutes, and art fairs. The local art scene provides many opportunities to get out and enjoy art.
