All of us are aware of the importance of arts education in our modern, global society. The City of Houston — America’s modern, global city for the twenty-first century — is home to world-class institutions at the highest level of each of the visual and performing arts. These are institutions that make vital contributions to our thriving regional economy as well as, perhaps even more importantly, to the culture of our city and to the health of our democracy at large.more from the dean...
