      Art is part of a culture that brings life to neighborhoods and cities. It pervades inspiration and curiosity.

      We are taking all of the creativity out of our children's lives.

      As a person of the arts (music), I value the opportunity to experience activities using visual and performing arts. I look forward each year to seeing what artists will be appearing and it's a time when we citizens can have some down time and enjoy ourselves along with our families. IT also attracts others to our neck of the woods and therefore brings revenue to our county. With everything else that's going on in the world that's not necessarily positive, it's good for us to be able to take a step back from the troubles of this world and exhale.

      I'm a native of Atlanta and all my family still lives there. My nephew is a ballet student. My niece is studying graphic art and music I used to be a commercial actress there. Cutting money for the arts throws people back into the dark ages. Support and easy access to a variety of arts is a primary factor companies look for when relocating their people to another city. It has scientifically been proven to help veterans with rehabilitation, people with mental disabilities and terminal illnesses, and a host of other things that create a high quality of life. The arts separate us from uncivilized people and animals. Don't allow Atlanta to be perceived as a backward hick town by cutting funding for these valuable programs.

      Art is an extremely important part of Atlanta and there is never enough funding
