We have to feed our mind and soul and this is a great way to do it

Art is meant to be shared, so I think it is especially important that we work to foster our next generation of artists. To have a platform like the Promising Artists Exhibit, that includes Bronson, Kalamazoo Public Schools and the Arts Council, makes the experience for these students that much greater. I know a lot of adult artists who wait a lifetime to display their work. It is so amazing to give this group of students the opportunity to get themselves and their artwork out in front of the public. To take these kinds of artistic risks definitely helps to promote a healthier lifestyle.
