Quote of the Day (Nov. 18, 2007)

November 18, 2007


"Arts and cultural organizations open our eyes to new and different ways of viewing ourselves and our world. Through their creative acts, they stoke creative thinking in all of us — thinking that leads to innovation, invention, and works of balance and beauty. Creative thinking built [the metro Detroit] region, and we believe creative thinking will sustain it. The health and vitality of our artists and arts and cultural organizations play a critical role in the strength of our economy and the quality of our community life."

-- Kresge Foundation president Rip Rapson
