Arts and culture not only enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors in a community – the creative economy is a vital element in building and sustaining unique and diverse communities. As part of a project of the Americans for the Arts, the City of Alexandria Office of the Arts worked with leaders in the industry to track and measure the vitality and impact of the arts in our community.
After the announcement, join us for the 22nd Annual Art Safari throughout the Torpedo Factory for an afternoon of hands-on activities for kids and families.
