I grew up in DC. A free, independent arts community was at the heart of DC culture. That independence was important then, even more so now.

Not right for art, not right for DC. Remove restrictions and go toward the future, not the past.

We all need art, of course. Desire and ability to produce art are some of the few ways that humans are truly separate from other species. We need art to continue to inspire, reflect, communicate and create in healthy, productive, lasting ways. Long live the artists in our communities!!!
