Press release from Western Carolina University:
The arts have an incredible power to inspire us and bring us together. The arts do this in many ways – emotionally, intellectually, spiritually – just to name a few. Now more than ever, we must also look to the arts to inspire us and bring us together, virtually.
We are working on providing a variety of digital experiences to ensure the enjoyment of the arts remains present in all of our lives, even during these difficult times.
